Caronia To Depart Cunard
Cunard Line announces today that it has sold Caronia to The Saga Group. The 24,492-ton, 665-passenger ship was launched in 1973 and initially sailed under the name Vistafjord. In a strange way, Caronia, which never really caught on with American cruise travellers and had been sailing out of Southampton, is going home: Saga Group operates Saga Rose, a sister ship, which was formerly known as Sagafjord. Caronia will leave Cunard’s fleet in November 2004.

Its departure will enable Cunard Line to market its all-Queen line-up: the Queen Elizabeth 2, and two new ships – the much heralded Queen Mary 2, slated for a January 2004 premiere, and Queen Victoria, which will be launched in March 2005.
