Deilmann Cruise: Is it the end for Deilmann?

After 40 years, Deilmann Cruise seems to have come to an end. The owners of Deilmann’s ship Deutschland, investment group MS Deutschland Beteiligungsgeschellshaft, and the operator, Peter Deilmann Reederei, filed for bankruptcy in early November 2014, and a bondholders’ meeting of the former was called.

No decision was made on the ship’s forthcoming major refit and her world cruise that was due to start on 18 December 2014. However, on 27 November 2014 the provisional liquidator took the decision to cancel the world cruise, as no investors had come forward, although there had been expressions of interest in acquiring the ship.

At the time of writing, Deilmann Cruise is still advertising a 2015 cruise programme from May, but by then the ship could well be operating for someone else. The 22,000-ton Deutschland was built for Deilmann in Kiel in 1998, but, following the death of founder Peter Deilmann in 2004, the company has struggled to survive.
