Old Carnival Cruise Ship Waiting to be Scrapped

A cruise ship which was part of the Carnival Cruise Line fleet is rusting away and waiting to be scrapped.

We reported back in June 2016 that MS Henna is to be scrapped and now the ship which was previously named Jubilee is awaiting its fate. The old vessel recently completed the towing process and is now laid up upon the banks of the world famous Indian ship-breaking yard in Alang, India.

The rusting ship will be broken apart slowly in the coming months and the steel will be sold to be used again. In the future, nothing will remain of the ship and everything will be taken out which could be salvaged and sold on.

The ship first began service in 1986 for Carnival Cruise Line. When the ship joined the fleet it was a new era of cruising and an iconic time for fun cruises with the Miami-based cruise line. The ship was a Holiday-class vessel and the sister to the Holiday and Celebration.

Jubilee still is until it is scrapped a 47,200 gross ton ship which used to carry up to 1,500 passengers each sailing. The ship was then transferred to P&O Australia as Pacific Sun in 2004 and then sailed as Henna for the Chinese cruise line HNA. The Chinese company closed its cruise business and with no party interested in purchasing the once famous ship it was sent to the ship breakers.
