CMA CGM Vivaldi back again

CMA CGM Vivaldi arrived today on the CMA CGM / UASC / CSCL Columbus Loop service. On August 3 it was the first CMA CGM ship to call in Halifax on this service. Now 18 weeks later it has completed the "loop" and is back again. [I missed it the first time since I was out of town.]

CMA CGM Vivaldi was built in 2004 by Hyundai Heavy Industries in Ulsan, South Korea. It measures 90,745 grt, 100,400 dwt and has a capacity of 8238 TEU (including 700 reefers)

The CMA CGM service was not officially inaugurated until the September 13-14 call of CMA CGM Melisande, which was covered here:
The service got off a to bit of a slow start with ships every two to three weeks, but has been weekly since October, with the ships usually here on Saturday or Sunday.

The ships arrive directly from Suez without stops, then go on to New York, Norfolk and Savannah before heading back to the Far East.
