Breamar to become residence ship

Villa Vie Residences, a new cruise ship start up, has acquired its residence ship, as the company took delivery of the former Breamar from Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines in early March 2024.

The ship will now head to Belfast where she will undergo an extensive refurbishment and drydocking ahead of entering service in May.

The ship had been laid up since Covid, and was most recently docked in Edinburgh. The company plans for the 924-passenger, 24,344gt vessel to enter service in May 2024, sailing from Southampton.

 Plans call for an initial three-year world cruise, available in segments as well. Ownership pricing starts at $99,999 for an inside cabin, with the ownership of the suite guaranteed for 15 years.

In addition are monthly fees, and there are also ‘pay as you go’ options.
