Pullmantur's Ocean Dream Chartered to Peaceboat?

Reports are circulating that Spanish operator Pullmantur will not operate the Ocean Dream and that the ship has been chartered the the Japanese organization Peaceboat. The Ocean Dream started her career in 1981 as the first newbuild for Carnival Cruise Line - the Tropicale. She later operated as the Costa Tropicale and then operated for P&O Cruises Australia as the Pacific Star and then Pullmantur. The Ocean Dream can carry upto 1,422 passengers and weighs 35,000 tons and is 673 feet long.

Unfortunately this probably means that the Oceanic may face an uncertain future at the age of 47 years old. The ship has had a very colorful career starting as Home Line's Oceanic; Premier Cruise Line's Starship Oceanic; Pullmantur's Oceanic and the Oceanic for Peaceboat. Hopefully she will find future employment, but with the high price of fuel and her older engines this seems unlikely.
