Bleu de France

(CDF Croisières of France: 2008- )


Bleu de France was built as Europa (3) for Hapag-Lloyd in 1981 by Bremer Vulkan. She weighs 37012grt, is 656ft long and has engines of 28900hp. Europa (3) carried 770 passengers, and cruised worldwide for Hapag-Lloyd until 1999, when she passed to Star Cruises on delivery of Europa (4). In 2000, she is the SuperStar Aries (after being originally renamed SuperStar Europe). In March 2001 it was announced that SuperStar Aries would transfer to the Orient Lines fleet (also owned by Star Cruises) from 2002 as their Ocean Voyager. This transfer did not take place and Orient Lines reverted to a single ship operation with Marco Polo. SuperStar Aries was sold to Pullmantur in 2004 and renamed Holiday Dream. Pullmantur was acquired by Royal Caribbean in 2006, and from May 2008 Holiday Dream will operate for new new French subsidiary CDF Croisières of France as Bleu de France.
