Resolute hailed with party
EXPEDITION cruise line One Ocean Expeditions (OOE) is gearing up to officially welcome the 184-passenger RCGS Resolute to its fleet via a special recommissioning event in Canada next week.
She will sail into her new homeport of Sydney, Nova Scotia on 16 Oct, formally joining the OOE family after previously operating under the Hanseatic name with the Hapag-Lloyd Cruises brand.
The welcome party will be attended by several Canadian politicians, as well as OOE’s Chief Executive Officer John Geiger.
“This day represents a great moment in the history of the Royal Canadian Geographical Society…RCGS Resolute is a platform not only for expeditionary travel but for science & education,” Geiger said.
Other notable events on the day will include a performance by the Stadacona Band of the Royal Canadian Navy and an on-board VIP celebration that will conclude with an exclusive performance by local band Barra MacNeils.
RCGS Resolute’s inaugural voyage for OOE will depart from Ushuaia, Argentina, on 16 Nov for an “Antarctica – Off the Beaten Track” voyage, before operating cruises of the Chilean Fjords.
