The UK High Court has granted applications by creditors to put five Global Maritime Group cruiseships up for auction.

Exclusive UK Admiralty shipbroker CW Kellock told TradeWinds that the vessels will be sold next month pursuant to court orders made on 2 and 4 September.

The five ships, marketed by collapsed UK cruise company Cruise & Maritime Voyages (CMV), have been arrested in Tilbury and Avonmouth.
