According to an official announcement, the cruise ship RCGS Resolute (in service with Hapag-Lloyd Cruises until 2018 as "MS Hanseatic") is soon to be auction-sold in Willemstad Curacao (Dutch Antilles).

During the past weeks, there have been negative headlines about the vessel. For example, the ship's last charter operator - the Canadian company One Ocean Expeditions - went bankrupt in mid-April 2020.

But even before One Ocean's bankruptcy, the boat was arrested in December 2019 (for late payments) in Buenos Aires Argentina. In 2020, RCGS Resolute was bought free again, shortly after a collision accident occurred with a Venezuelan naval vessel. Due to the accident, minor repair works had to be done.

The 1991-built cruise ship joined Hapag-Lloyd in 1993 and as MS Hanseatic served the company for 25 years. RCGS Resolute started operations for One Ocean on November 16, 2018 (inaugural cruise), deployed on Antarctica itineraries.
