Thank you very much, from the golden age of film cameras...
I had the same feeling that I had heard something about her future and I found this from Wikipedia: "In July 2007 it was announced that the ship has been acquired by the re-launched Swan Hellenic line and the name will revert to Minerva." So you were right indeed!

an excellent photo! I've only ever met her as Alexander von Humboldt...
I could have sworn that I read somewhere that she'll be sailing again as Minerva in 2008 (for V Ships maybe). But I can't remember where (Maritime Matters comes to mind).
Do you happen to have heard something about this?
