I was trying to find out what happened to the Festivale and stumbled across this Wikipedia list. I don't know how accurate it is. I did manage to find the post Carnival history though.

Yes, Unfortunately she met the same demise as the beloved Norway and in the same place, Alang. I always hated when Premier took a classic ship and renamed it Big Red Boat! more here

I don't remember how long ago, but there was a little written about the Carnivale.

If I am remembering it correctly, her last "job" was as a Greenpeace ship (or something like that). They were trying to decide whether or not to sell her for scrap.

They hauled her to Asia and while they were trying to decide if they should scrap her or not....another ship hit her...which sealed the fate.

Kinda sad....

Thanks for the link Cruise Fanatic. I found this about the Carnivale. It was a sad ending indeed. I was on her last cruise under the Carnival brand. I have a picture of them chainging the name to Fiesta Marina half way through the cruise. I'll try to get it scanned.

I found the Flavia met her demise in a nasty way, too. She was a neat old ship. Sailed for Costa for a while, originally built as a cargo/passenger ship with 250 first class cabins. Later was converted to an all passenger ship, then caught fire.

What ever happened to RCI's Song of America? That was our first ship we cruised. I had heard that it was sold and then extended but thats about all.

It looks like she still had her Crown Lounge in the stacks.

As you can see from my signature, I have had the pleasure of sailing on many of the ships that are no longer in service, many are not in existance anymore.

I loved the old ships and still try to get myself onto the older vessels now as they have so much more character than the Farcas Fantasies etc.
