Beautiful ship indeed (even more so before she was messed about with) but, in reality, ultimately clapped-out.

Another beaut from our late friend Cees Bustraan.

It is so sad to read all of the optimistic comments regarding what was seen as her future. Fate decided otherwise...

She definitely is a REAL ship. Is that confirmed that she stays on as Hotel Ship ? Would be bad if she goes for the beaches

She deserves to last forever. If that is ever made possible :P Was onboard her in Ringaskiddy, Ireland last year for her final visit loved her and her exterior is one of few remaining. Lovely picture Cees anymore of her.
Best Regards

"Those were the days, my friend. We thought they'd never end..." I hope she'll live another 40 years as hotel ship!

A most beautiful photo of a gorgeous ship, Cees!
