The previous owner of this ship, was a German company best known for its fleet of four- and five-star river boats, has a cruise ship as well. This ship competes with Hapag Lloyd's Europa for the German premium market. The late owner, the founder and president of the line that bears his name, had a unique vision of what a cruise ship in the grand hotel tradition would be. Your view of his flagship, will depend on whether or not you share that vision. Let me say at the outset that I have never sailed on a ship where attention to quality in decor matched that of this vessel. Everything onboard this ship is of the finest quality -- furniture, soft furnishings and appointments. One thing this ship cannot be called is bland. All textiles are richly patterned, including carpeting, curtains and bed linens. The ship is filled with paintings and sculpture culled from the previous owners family's collection. Wood -- and the ship's interior is almost all wood -- gleams. There are beveled and etched glass mirrors everywhere. To ride in an elevator is to enter another world: a wood paneled chamber with shiny brass trim and beveled mirrors. No two elevators are alike -- they are moving rooms. There are photographs throughout the ship of famous German film actors, of German liners before World War I and between the wars, of scenes in German cities, all of which are nostalgic evocations of an idealized past.

QPS Marine Ships, can best be described as a “boutique” vessel brokerage firm. We do not try to be “all things to all people.” We do not list hundreds of various types of vessels with the hope a potential customer might call. We specialize in a distinct market: Cruise Ships. Each listing we accept is individually presented to a clearly defined group of potential customers. Our team of seasoned professionals includes the former president of a well known cruise ship company, as well as the former owner of the largest sightseeing and dinner cruise company in the United States. If you are interested in individualized service from our knowledgeable marine professionals, QPS Marine Ships is the place to list your excess vessels, purchase a pre-owned vessel, consult on a new build cruise ship, or charter a cruise ship.
