 Wednesday, September 7, 2022 


A new french crusie line Compagnie Française de Croisières (CFC) will begin it’s journey from 2023. The line will begin with the former Holland America Line Maasdam. This line has been renamed a renaissance.

The ship has already gotten its name and will start operating in February for the new cruise brand. The entire project will be led by Clément Mousset and Cédric Rivoire Perrochat who are two former cruise line executives, arguably experts in the french market.

The Maasdam has been sold to Greek ferry operator Seajets at the start of the pandemic by Carnival Corporation and has been laid up from then. The ship is getting a new lease on life. Seajets will provide financing packages to the new operators. They will be responsible for getting the entire ship ready for sail. The entire transaction value is expected to be somewhere near $30 million.

The first sail of the renaissance would begin on February 10, 2023. She will sail from Le Havre, the ship will sail towards Norway to show guests the Northern Lights. The entire cruise will be fifteen days in length. After the travel, the cruise will return to Normandy port on February 25 after which it will begin the next trip to Norway.

From September 2023 onwards, the ship will be repositioning to Marseille. This is the home port that hosts the company’s headquarters. The series of Mediterranean voyages. It is unknown if the cruise line intends to purchase more vessels in the future.
