Pearl Seas Cruises has revised its schedule again, cancelling 2010 sailings. The first sailing for the Halifax-built Pearl Mist is now scheduled for January 2011.
Until recently Pearl Seas' web site showed a July 2010 start up. However with the ship laid up in Shelburne in a dispute with the builders, there was fading hope for a 2010 season.
The ship carried out trials in May 2009 (as pictured above), but since then the owners and builders have been locked in a disagreement that is still not resolved. Rumours abound, that I will not repeat, but it is fair to say that Pearl Seas is not accepting delivery of the ship.
