She has just been sold to Corsica Ferries and will be renamed MEGA ANDREA, so you probably saw her heading for the Med.

Silja Festival was brought over to the west coast of Canada to serve as a temporary (1 year +) floating hotel to house workers of a large construction/upgrade project at the large aluminum smelter complex at Kitimat, BC.
