Bryan, The final role of the former Carinthia was as a casino ship in Hong Kong. After this short-lived venture failed she was sold for breaking up. I think she was scrapped in India, she was certainly not broken up in Hong Kong harbour! In this picture she is obviously having all her lifeboats tested for seaworthiness. It is not a lifeboat drill for passengers.
