The sister vessel to the SS France could be chartered off to RCCL's France-based Compagnie des Iles du Ponant, if they're interested. And the sister vessel to TS Michaelangelo, could be chartered off to Crystal Cruises. This could be a good option. Chartering the ocean liners to a reputable cruise line operater is much cheaper than having your own cruise line with all of the overhead cost involved.
