Where's the V2V Empress?


Loading onto BBC Mont Blanc

The former V2V Empress catamaran is taking a ride aboard the BBC Mont Blanc!
Idle and moored for the last three years in the Victoria harbour, the vessel has been sold
and is now bound for Florida. The 180-tonne Empress will be going through the Panama canal
enroute to Florida, before it starts its new life as a re-branded passenger vessel ?somewhere? in the Caribbean.
