Currently in lay up in Singapore for the past two months, Voyager’s cruises were cut short with the collapse of Voyages of Discovery’s parent company, All Leisure Group in January this year.

Speaking to TTG Media, the administrator for All Leisure, Eddie Willams of Grant Thornton, confirmed that the ship had indeed been sold.  He said:

“The sale process completed in early March and Voyager was sold to a third-party Mexican purchaser. The exact terms of the deal are confidential.”

Whilst not confiriming the name of the company, reports are circulating that the company who have acquired Voyager is Hoteles Dinamicos.  They are a Mexican airline that has a select fleet of private jets and whilst there is not a great deal of information available for them, the question remains if they are indeed the company that has purchased Voyager, what will their plans be for the cruise ship?

Built in 1990, the 15,396grt ship has had a chequered history including spells with the now defunct Cunard-Crown division as Crown Monarch in the early 1990s, a casino ship in Hong Kong named Neptune in 2001, Phoenix Reisen as Alexander von Humboldt II and Alexander von Humboldt between 2008 and 2009 and finally with Voyages of Discovery as Voyager between 2009 and 2017.

Cruisemarsh’s editor, Anthony, was on board Voyager for a 3 night cruise in May 2015. Hopefully the ship now has a future ahead of herself. We shall await further details.
