Atlantic Cartier.. Still Sailing.

Atlantic Cartier continues to sail, along with Atlantic Conveyor, and have scheduled stops into at least July. Monday brings the Maiden Call of Atlantic Sky, which was accepted from the builders at the end of March. This means 4/5  of the new g4 vessels are in operation, with Atlantic Sun still not accepted from the builders. The first vessel, Atlantic Star was recently drydocked, and it appears the second – Atlantic Sail may be undergoing work at the moment.

Cartier and Conveyor will continue on, until Atlantic Sun comes into service, and the Drydockings finish.
