Cruise ship to become asylum accomodation in Amsterdam
The "Ocean Majesty" is to be converted into a refugee home. The contracts of the 220 crew members from the charterer "Hansa Touristik" have already been terminated. The ship will then serve as asylum accommodation in Amsterdam, where it could bring in more money for the operator. Most recently, the "Ocean Majesty" was on a 21-day cruise to Greenland before returning to Hamburg on Aug 7, 2023. The 'Ocean Majesty' was detained in June 2022 due to serious safety deficiencies by the Swedish authorities. The current cruise had to be canceled at that time. The problems were presumably related to the long layup period from March 2020 to April 2022.

The vessel was inspected while it was mooredin the port of Lorient on May 13, 2022. The inspection yielded nothing, and the vessel was then allowed to continue its voyage to the port of Saint-Nazaire. TThe investigation continued, and the waste that was still collected, was thoroughly examined.
