Celestyal Cruises sells ship it never used

Celestyal Cruises has sold a ship it bought only last year that it never got the opportunity to operate with guests.

It acquired the 1,800-guest Costa NeoRomantica but has now sold it on to a new buyer, making a tidy $3 million profit.

It had renamed the ship the Celestyal Experience.

The 'prolonged effects of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic' caused a rethink.

"After careful thought and consideration, the company sold the Experience and will continue to operate the same sized fleet that has served it well prior to the pandemic," the line said in a statement.

It continues operating Celestyal Olympia and Celestyal Crystal and will revisit increasing its fleet size at a later date.
