MS Robert Burns Wiki

The ship is named after Robert Burns (1759-1796) - Scottish poet who was regarded as a national bard (aka Bard of Ayrshire, Ploughman Poet) for writing in the Scots language. He also collected numerous Scottish folk songs. His poem "Auld Lang Syne" is often sung at Hogmanay (December 31), while his song "Scots Wha Hae" is Scotland's unofficial national anthem.

The vessel is powered by two Cat-3508 marine diesel engines (Caterpillar), which are V8, 4-stroke engines with individual weight 4309 kg, lube oil volume 227 L, power output 574 kW (combined/ship total 1,15 MW). The propulsion is based on two fixed pitch propellers (stern) and one bow thruster (azimuthing/azipod).

The boat's godmother is Gloria Bohan (founder of Omega World Travel). The christening ceremony was held on April 3, 2018, in Vienna Austria. Omega World Travel (established 1972) is a travel management company with annual revenue of over USD 1 billion. It owns the companies TravTech and CruiseCom. Following the naming ceremony, the ship started a 3-night "Inaugural Cruise" from Vienna to Budapest Hungary. with around 75 US travel agents on board.

Vessel's construction (hull and superstructure, ENI number 07002085) was done at the Vahali Shipyard in Zasavica (Sremska Mitrovica, Serbia). The 1923-founded Dutch shipbuilding company (Scheepswerf En Machinefabriek Vahali BV) owns and operates yards in Serbia (Belgrade, and Zasavica) and in Holland (Gendt). Vahali Shipyard Zasavica was officially opened in 2013. Following the construction in Serbia, the cruise ship was towed to Holland for final outfitting at Scheepswerf Vahali (Gendt).
