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.
