Can anyone tell me what happemend to CTC Cruises. We sailed with them on the Alexandre Pushkin in 1984. The ship was later refurbished and renamed the Marco Polo. I am interested to know if CTC Cruises was bought out by another cruise line.
I sailed on both CTC's Alexander Pushkin and Shota Rustaveli. They were a lot of fun but very crude by todays standards. The food was barely tolerable. On one occasion we were at sea over Good Friday and the catholics on board were having a nightmare trying to explain they wanted fish on the menu for religious reasons.
A legacy of CTC is that they, and to an extent Sitmar, taught Australians to expect cheap cruises on ordinary ships. To this day Australia gets the oldest ships in the Carnival fleet.
