Ambassador is another cruise line to accept only vaccinated guests onboard and they state they will ensure their crew is vaccinated. Primarily aimed at the 50-plus market, they will run a number of multi-generation cruises over the summer holidays. These will be authentic cruise experiences. The new group is fully financed with no debt finance and have retained a few CMV staff to share their experience with the new team. They will still be based in Purfleet, Essex and sail out of Tilbury.

There are many Mistral Class war vessels, but this is the cruise ship class. You will see the same or similar ships called the Lyrica class, some operated by MSC Cruises. They were built at Chantiers de l’Atlantique, St. Nazaire, France. She was previously the AidaMira with and before that with Costa as the neoRiveriera. Whilst some may jump to question our banding them all together the strongest argument for this is that the first in class often gives ship and class the name. Lyrica is way down the line. Maybe it is a subclass as the Lyrica is longer and bigger, but these are similar smaller ships.  The Lyrica class goes up to about 250 meters in length, over 2,000 passengers on 9 passenger decks.
