The Eagle was actually delivered to P&O Southern Ferries in April 1971 operating a passenger/ro/ro service from Southampton to Lisbon and Algerciras, from 1973 this service was extended to include Tangier.

P&O Southern Ferries closed this route in September 1975 and after a short period laid up in the River Fal the Eagle was sold to Paquet Cruises and renamed Azur, later she would be sold to Chandris Lines keeping the name of Azur!
