P&O Cruises Australia’s Pacific Aria is exiting

Pacific Aria had been scheduled to exit in April but may be going as soon as next month
Pacific Aria, Holland America Line’s former Ryndam, which joined P&O Cruises Australia in November 2015, has been sold just over six months before she was due to leave the fleet.

A company spokeswoman said Aria, sold during the company’s pause in operations, may depart ‘as early as next month.’ 

Going to Seajets

The spokeswoman declined to name the buyer, but Seatrade Cruise News has confirmed the ship is going Greece’s Seajets. It is currently anchored off Limassol, Cyprus.

Pacific Aria had been expected to exit in April, headed for Cruise & Maritime Voyages, which planned to rename it Ida Pfeiffer to sail under the TransOcean Kreuzfahrten brand on the German market. CMV subsequently went bankrupt
