According to multiple sources at Cruise Shipping Miami, start-up Portuscale Cruises has run into trouble in Lisbon, with the Lisboa being arrested at the Portuguese port.

Meanwhile, another company vessel, the Azores, seems to be delayed and also in the port instead of sailing to Germany, as previously scheduled. These reports could not be confirmed.

For background, Portuscale acquired most of the old Classic International fleet after that company filed for bankruptcy. Since then Lisbon-based Portuscale has not only bought tonnage but invested millions in refurbishments, starting up operations and more.
