In the period 2010-2014, the ship was renamed “MS Grand Holiday” and transferred to the Carnival Corporation’s subsidiary Ibero Cruceros (Spain). In November 2014 was officially announced that the vessel will join the fleet of CMV (Cruise And Maritime Voyages) under the name “MS Magellan” (starting operations March 2015).
