DBDigital Epsilon who is the managing director of the SS Galaxy cruise ship in Second Life announced on Sunday 26th April 2015 that the ship will be closing down on Sunday 3rd May 2015. This is extremely sad news and it will be deeply missed within Second Life. The reasons for the closure are due to incidents during recent months and are complex apparently. Tier problems is not the issue this time for the closure.

Here is the closure announcement via the SS Galaxy news blog.

Dear Supporters and Friends of the SS Galaxy,

The Management and Crew of the SS Galaxy would like to thank each and every one of you for helping make the Galaxy community one of the most thriving, vibrant and welcoming on the Second Life grid.

Together with your help, we have been building wonderful memories since February 2007.

All good things must come to and end, and in the Galaxy’s case, we will be closing the ship on May the 3rd. All current renters will receive a 100% refund of your most recent payment. Please help us by picking up all your items as soon as possible; before the 3rd we will be doing room by room returns throughout the week as well if anything is left.

For us as the Crew, the privilege has been ours to meet and interact with each of you over these eight years. The memories we have from these experiences, will continue to inspire us and our values, long beyond 2015.

Many of you have become more than our cabin tenants – we consider you a part of the Galaxy family as well 🙂

In the many diverse strands of lifestories, God has granted us the blessing of having our respective stories intertwine, at least for a time.

As we prepare to go on beyond April 2015, the Crew wish you that the strength in bonds will continue to sustain each and every one of you, along life’s way.

From all of us here at the SS Galaxy,

A heartfelt thank you.

DBDigital Epsilon

    Sad news! I remember all the excitement and hoopla about the opening of SS Galaxy and how amazing that it would be as long as three sims WOW … My personal memories are safe and secure in my heart. DBDigital: My personal “Thanks” to you and the crew I feel like shouting from the highest mountain in all the lands. Your imagination and generous heart is what makes virtual worlds such a pleasure to explore! Best of luck with your next endeavor or just chillin’ if that is what your plans include. HUGGLES

    The end of an era, a sad day for everyone. The care and love that went into each detail of the ship made it my choice for one of the two most Brilliant Builds in Second Life. Sympathies to those who never had the opportunity to experience it.
