Some chat now that the OW will be replacing the Kriti 1 which is on a one year charter to GNV (from SNAV) at a cost of €20k per day.

Kriti I is chartered from ANEK. I'd find that a surprising switch TBH - certainly the Civitavecchia-Termini route probably needs the Kriti's rather more substantial freight capacity more whereas the OW is better suited to a tourist route.

OW has arrived in Genoa. She is berthed alongside Le Rif (Stena Galloway) and there are a number of shipyards on the quayside.

Interesting to see how they transform her.

Oscar Wilde is currently undergoing repainting.  She will be renamed GNV Allegra before entering service on the 25th between Genoa and Olbia.  Some pics on NIFS for those interested.

I have trawled around the internet looking for Pictures of  the Now named GNV Allegra (ex Oscar wilde) and have found an image of her here https://www.olbianova.it/notizie/trasporti-marittimi-attiva-la-nuova-olbia-genova-della-grandi-navi-veloci/.
I must say the ship looks better in white however whoever designed the Logo ?? well it speaks for itself,I leave it for everyone to decide themselves.
