An unfinished cruise ship destined to be one of the world’s largest in the world may take its first voyage to the scrapyard.
According to numerous media outlets, the Global Dream II, designed to hold more than 9,000 passengers, has almost been completed. However, the shipbuilder MV Werften and its parent company filed for bankruptcy at the beginning of the year, and administrators have been unable to find a new buyer for the liner.
According to German magazine An Bord, attempts are being made to sell some of the fixtures and engines, but the half-finished keel will be sold for scrap if a buyer for the ship can’t be secured.
