Pak's 14-storey ship to be sold in junk due to less parking space

According to the report, Pakistan's 14-storey cruise ship, Celestyal Experience, formerly known as Costa Romantics, will be sold in junk due to the lack of parking space at the country's port in Karachi.

The new owner of Pakistan's cruise ship from New Choice Enterprise, Ahmadullah Khan, said that he made efforts to provide recreation for the ship. He had plans to turn it into a hotel or cruise to attract tourism.

He had bought the ship to dismantle it in Pakistan, but after seeing it in perfect shape, he changed his mind to turn it into a tourist attraction.

He said that he had discussed the issue with the Pakistan National Shipping Corporation (PNSC), but no place could be allocated to the cruise ship within the largest port of the country.

As per the report, the ship has been taken to the Gadani ship-breaking yard to get it dismantled.

He told the media that the Chairman of Karachi Port Trust (KPT), Nadir Mumtaz Warraich, had assured him to cooperate. However, he realised that the ship could not be parked at the port due to a lack of space.
