A buyer has been found for the single-ship MS Berlin, following the demise of FTI Cruises in July 2020.
The new owner is Dreamliner Cruises, a Royalton Investment company, which has the world’s largest fleet of mega yachts, aims to convert MS Berlin into a luxury yacht and rename her Dream Goddess. Both parties have agreed not to disclose the sales price for MS Berlin.
Clayton Andreson, CEO of Dreamliner Cruises said: “Due to its size, the MS Berlin fits perfectly into our vision of offering luxury yacht cruises. We are therefore delighted that, after extensive renovation, it will cruise the world’s oceans as part of our fleet.”
“We are pleased about the offer from Dreamliner Cruises, which will transform the cruise ship MS Berlin into a modern, luxurious mega-yacht,” explains Alexander Gessl, Managing Director FTI Cruises.
MS Berlin began life in 1980 operated by Peter Deilmann Cruises. For seven years between 2006 and 2012, the ship operated as Spirit of Adventure for Saga Cruises. FTI Cruises purchased the ship in 2012 and has operated MS Berlin ever since.
