Initially reported sold to South Korean buyers, Louis Cruise Lines has now reported that the 54-year-old Emerald has been sold for scrap in June for  $5 Million dollars.

This is the second cruise ship that Louis Cruise Line has sold in the last three months. The Sapphire was recently sold for scrap as well. The line is actively reducing the older tonnage of the fleet. Currently Louis Cruise Line has 7 ships.

Although the Emerald did go though a total rennovation in the last 10 years, her fuel hungry  steam turbine-powered engines have made it hard for her to find suitable active service.
The Emerald was originally bult as the Santa Rosa for Grace Lines.
