(1:20 p.m. EST) -- Costa Cruises
might have sold its out-of-service Costa Voyager ship to China-based Bohai Ferry, according to Sino Ship News
. The ferry company has created a subsidiary dedicated to cruise business and said it plans to purchase Voyager for $43.68 million in order to launch the division.
Costa Cruises has declined to comment on the report other than to confirm that, as of November 2013, it ceased operation of Costa Voyager and put the ship up for sale.
