MS Ambience – technical details and naming ceremony videos from Pete

MS Ambience is the name of the first ship for Ambassador Cruise Lines, now at sea.

Ambassador is a new British cruise operator. Primarily aimed at the 50-plus market, however, they will run a number of multi-generation cruises over the summer holidays. These will be authentic cruise experiences. The new group is up and running, and has retained a few experienced CMV staff to share their experience with the new team. They will still be based in Purfleet, Essex, and sail out of Tilbury.

Saved from the ship-breakers Alang, in India, after the Bitcoin group that bought her failed to establish their new eutopia, she has many expired certificates like a car has an MOT. These will all need to be passed and re-issued and some sea trials have already taken place.  In October 2021 it entered Viktor Lenac shipyard in Croatia. Under the name of Satoshi, it began the extensive refurbishment. Now sailing, she is getting good press and reviews. Please message us if you have a film to be added to the collection.

The work continues, but completed work includes but is in no way limited to the installation of new technical equipment, scrubbers, a new water purification system and wastewater treatment system. This classic ship, built for Princess Cruises as Regal Princess, also sailed for P&O Australia as Pacific Dawn. She is still a stunning ship, and once again popular in her new colours.
