A report in the German press claims there are four bidders for the cruise ship Deutschland with a decision expected as soon as Wednesday, November 26.

Callista Private Equity, which was the most recent investor in Peter Deilmann, was said not to be one of the bidders.

A big-budget shipyard refurbishment that was supposed to take place now has been delayed.

A world cruise is still scheduled to depart Dec. 18, but it is believed the ship needs a class survey in drydock regardless, which would be the responsibility of the new owners.
