What happens to retired cruise ships

Anyone know?

I've wondered that myself. My understanding is that they are repeatedly sold down the cruise line hierarchy to smaller and smaller lines. After about 30-40 years of service, they are eventually they are broken down for parts, which I've heard happens in India. I could be completely wrong, of course.
Old cruise ships are scrapped in 3 places , Gadani in Pakistan , Alang in India and Chittagong in Bangladesh
That's funny, Gadani, Alang, and Chittagong, were bartenders on our last cruise. BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAA!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Oops, my bad. Chittagong was our cabin steward.
Sadly, the NORWAY is a rusting hulk somewhere
