Royal Olympic Cruises
announced that the vessels Olympia Explorer
and Olympia Voyager will be sold at judicial auction, on March 24 and March 26 respectively, under process initiated by creditor banks and pursuant to a settlement agreement between ROCL, the owners, and the banks. The owning companies of the ships (subsidiaries of ROCL) had filed for Chapter 11 reorganization in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Honolulu, Hawaii, following which the ships were placed under judicial arrest pursuant to the settlement agreement.
