CroisiEurope will add a second ocean ship to its fleet with
the acquisition of Silversea's former Silver Discoverer.
To be renamed La Belle des Oceans, the ship is
expected to re-enter service in spring 2020. The French river cruise operator last
introduced an ocean ship in 2007, La Belle de l'Adriatique.
The 120-passenger Belle des Oceans will have 60 suites, nine
with private balconies; two bars; a main restaurant and a pool bar and grill; a
fitness center; and beauty salon and spa.
The ship's itineraries and launch date will be announced at
a later date.
