Nobel Caledonia Acquires 2nd Ship

Noble Caledonia has acquired a second ship, the former Renaissance VI built in 1991. The ship, a sister of the brand's owned Island Sky, will be named Caledonian Sky when she joins the company in May 2012.
The vessel is ultimately bound for South America, Australasia and the Pacific Rim but will spend much of 2012 in British and Arctic waters before heading to South America and beyond.

The 114 passenger vessel will continue the expansion of Noble Caledonia’s small ship and expedition cruising programs, complementing Island Sky, which became the company's first owned ship in early 2010 following six years of charter.

Both vessels were originally built as part of the Renaissance Cruises fleet and provide all-suite luxurious accommodation. They offer a private yacht style atmosphere. A fleet of inflatable zodiac landing craft allow them to explore the most remote of regions and an onboard team that includes specially chosen guest speakers.

During the coming winter months Caledonian Sky will undergo a significant refit.
