Former Bitcoin Cruise Ship Sets Sail With New Line
The former Bitcoin cruise ship Satoshi is officially sailing again.
In 2021, Ocean Builders — which intended to use the vessel as a floating residence before scrapping the project — sold Satoshi to startup Ambassador Cruise Line. Ambassador renamed the vessel Ambiance, and renovated it to become its first cruise ship.
On Wednesday, Ambiance departed on her maiden voyage under the Ambassador brand. She will spend her maiden season sailing from London to various destinations in northern Europe.
Ambiance was originally built in 1991 as Regal Princess for Princess Cruises, and also sailed as Pacific Dawn for P&O Cruises Australia.
