The Berlin actually belonged to KG Berlin Kreuzfahrts and was only chartered by Dielmann. I believe that Dielmann wanted the owners to greatly upgrade the ship but were turned down, so the charter was terminated at the end of last year. She has now been bought by Saga who are seeking tenders for a major refit and refurbishment to Saga standards.
The intention is to bring her into service early next year as Saga Opal

Just to let you know that the "BERLIN" is currently on charter to russian cruise operator MKRUIZ/METROPOLITAN TOUR as " ORANGE MELODY"...
A weird & funny name for a cruise ship.
