Seven months prior to commencment of the Charter in November? never heard of such a long period in my entire career (38 years!). somethins smells very fishiy to moi!!Andrew -
There is no reason why the new owners of the ' Athena ' ship should not market her on the Australian market themselves !
It does not need to be a charter as the new owners are a very large and wealthy Portugese company with hotels and various other holiday interests.
New ships crews need to be trained !.
You only have to look at what recently happened to the CMV chartered cruise ship ' Discovery ' when she failed the UK safety inspections at the UK port of Portland and could not sail due to having an untrained new crew on board.
Indeed.Sad to see the images of "Princess Danae" arriving home in Lisbon last Sunday, looking the worse for ware after her long lay-up under arrest. I'm wondering if, now
her sister "Princess Daphne" has (rumoured to have ) been sold back to Monarch, whether Ambient Kreutzfahrt might take "Danae" instead?
All good news for the old ships.

Did you ever work on a cruise ship ?
The crew do have leave periods so that has to be taken in to consideration when a cruise ship is being re-crewed.
More than one complete crew will be needed and may require training in the operation of all the safety equipment on board, including the ships lifeboats..
