Review of Ocean Star Pacific

Launched in 1970, Ocean Star Pacific cruise ship was built by Wartsila in Helsinki (Finland) and last owned and operated by Ocean Star Cruises. The vessel was originally built for Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines and initially named "Nordic Prince". Before receiving its last name (Ocean Star Pacific), the liner was operated under the names Carousel, Aquamarine, Arielle. The vessel was last refurbished in 2010 and scrapped in 2015.

History - construction and ownership

The 23,149-ton, 1,231-passenger cruise ship Ocean Star Pacific (Nordic Prince) was at that time the first modern purpose-built cruise ship in the fleet of Royal Caribbean. At the beginning, the vessel was used for sailing in the Caribbean leaving from the port of Miami. Few years later, in 1980, the length of Nordic Prince was increased at Wartsila Helsinki by 26 meters and the ship started offering cruises around the world.

Ocean Star Pacific cruise ship Aquamarine

After sailing for different companies, in 2010 Louis Cruises decided to sell Aquamarine (mv Ocean Star Pacific) to the Mexican operator Ocean Star Cruises. The change of the owner resulted in a change of the name, and the vessel received its present name - mv Ocean Star Pacific.

There were several small incidents in which the cruise ship was involved. After mv Ocean Star Pacific started sailing for Ocean Star Cruises, it was at first moored at Caracas Bay on Curacao for maintenance and a month later was disabled at Huatulco, Mexico, due to a fire in the engine room. The cruise ship was repaired, but few weeks later a new problems emerged, this time in the cooling systems and air conditioning.

Cruise itinerary program

In December 2014, the ship, sailing as Pacific Victory, ran aground in Manila (Sarangani Bay), while en route to Alang, India for ship breaking. In February 2015, the Pacific arrived in Alang for decommissioning.
