Cunard Lines has concluded an agreement to charter the 19,000-ton, 800-passenger Crown Dynasty to Majesty Cruise Line (MCL).

The Crown Dynasty, which is owned by the EffJohn Group, was chartered to Cunard in 1995, and will be renamed the Crown Majesty.

MCL assumes responsibility for on-board operations from March 1 and full management responsibility for the ship May 17, and will continue the ship's present sailing program.

The Kvaerner Group, which owns Cunard, also charters the Royal Majesty to MCL.
