||Cruise Ships built 1961-1970|
|23/11/2017, AstiCan shipyard, Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, Spain.
Sporting a new, abbreviated name and I wonder if this is a signal that the ship will be sold for demolition or even further service.
She was being manouvered while 'dead ship' from a repair berth to allow another ship to sail (the 'Frio Shinano').
Still here after several years now - detained alongside, the Canadian owners went bankrupt.
No recent news heard of her future fate.
Built in 1969 as an icebreaker by Wärtsilä, Helsinki, Finland (389), 4,998 g.t. as:-
'Njord' to 2000 &
'Polar Star' to 2017 &
'Polar S' since.
Converted in 2000 to a passenger & cruise vessel.
