Cruise company Noble Caledonia have increased their fleet to three vessels with the acquisition of Sea Explorer (1991), which will join Island Sky and Caledonian Sky later this year. All three vessels were formerly part of the Renaissance Cruises fleet. With the acquisition of Sea Explorer, Noble Caledonia now operates the former Renaissance VI, VII and VIII.
Demand for voyages aboard Island Sky and Caledonian Sky has seen over 90 per cent of capacity sold to early 2016, so the addition of Sea Explorer will enable Noble Caledonia to meet the current high demand for cruises.Noble Caledonia is best known for expedition and small ship cruising, serving the UK market since the early 1990s. The company will use its new acquisition to expand cruises in Scotland, Norway, Iceland and, in the future, Spitsbergen. Sea Explorer, formerly Island Sun and Corinthian II, will join the Noble Caledonia fleet in October, and in early 2016, after a refit, she will begin cruising, starting with voyages around Scotland.
