I just noted the picture and being a lifelong fan of this beautiful vessel I thought to add my contribution regarding the date of the picture. The ship was purchased after an auction by the greek banks in December 1975 after 10 months of lay-up at Kynosoura, Salamis near Piraeus. She left Greece late December and arrived Miami on new year's day January 1 1976. Thus the picture was taken during renovation sometime later.

Google searches for "Albury & Co" and "Causeway Terminal" all lead to Miami. As she was renamed Carnivale in December 1975, was modernized at Newport News and made her first cruise for Carnival Cruise Line out of Miami in February 1976, I'd say this places the photo somewhere around November/December 1975...

Must be the change from Queen Anna Maria. Look at the funnel, you can still spot remains of the Greek Line Trident.
