Hi Clive, thank you, you are 100% correct. I should have known I worked for them at that time...was always confused between the two. Thank you, Brett.

No, this is not the ship that was owned by Safmarine. This is the 'second' Astor, yes, she was ordered by South Africa Marine Corp in 1985 but whilst under construction she was transferred to the Marlan Corp. It was the first Astor, now sailing as Saga Pearl II that was owned by Safmarine and was marketed as such.
