Facing unplanned technical problems on its MS Hamburg ship, German one-ship operator Plantours will take over the Deutschland for a short, four-sailing stint starting on June 9.

The Hamburg has had to cancel recent trips with technical problems, leading the cruise line to charter the Deutschland from June 9 to July 29.

The Plantours crew is already on the ship, which is scheduled to arrive in Kiel on June 9.

The MS Hamburg, meanwhile, will shortly drydock at Lloyd Werft.
