Ah, that's right, sorry!

Yes, and it was actually very interesting to see that the hull is of the same design. Probably the closest I'll ever be on that freighter class :-D
But the one in Jeddah was actually our Humber Way. Penelope is the former European Gateway which sank off Felixstowe after a collision with Speedlink Vanguard.

But I must tell she's very smoky :-o

Grtz

Hi Dieter,

Very nice pic of a ship we don't see much. It is just from the beginning of september that she serves domestic routes, before she served the Igoumenitsa-Corfu-Brindisi line. She is the sister ship of Gardenia and Begonia of Transeuropa Ferries. She was half sunk in Jedda in 1977, but was rebuilt and lengthened.

Greetz,

Seb.
