The growing cruise market, particularly in Asia, points to a good time for companies to tap on its positive prospects.

The new Hanseatic Cruise Services will provide “comprehensive, world class passenger vessel management services to third-party clients around the world”, BSM and Optimum Ship Management said.

Norbert Aschmann, ceo of BSM, commented: “BSM is delighted to re-enter the passenger vessel management arena in partnership with Optimum.”
