Holiday back in Aalborg after 30 years

Holiday back in Aalborg after 30 years

06-07-2015 12:00:00


Many former employees at Aalborg Shipyard will probably stop by the harbor in Aalborg on July 16, when the cruise ship Magellan berths for a single day. Magellan is identical to the super-cruise ship Holiday, which was delivered from the closed Aalborg Shipyard.

The former shipyard workers will go on the pier and be proud of the ship that in the years 1984/85 were welded together and equipped in the area at that time amounted to Aalborg Shipyard.

It was not the last ship from the shipyard, but it was quite close. At that time in July 1985 when Holiday left for Miami, nobody knew what would eventually happen to the shipyard. It closed three years later after having built three reefers for the Soviet Union – ships that in 2014 and 2015 were shipped off to recycling.

The vessel was the second new construction for the US Carnival Cruise Line and with Tropicale made Carnival one of the world's largest cruise operators.
