The company has notably announced that the hull of the boat, which weighs more than 200,000 tonswill be sold at scrap prices while the engines and miscellaneous equipment are expected to be sold separately.

The fate of the World Dream, the second World Dream twin, remains uncertain. It is fully operational and is currently floating in the port of Wismar on the Baltic Sea.
