Thank you for adding it.

Can you please add Monarch's IMO number so it can be easier to acess?

You have got to go sometime!!!

Thanks flakma for keeping us posted, you are witnessing maritime history and old favourites demise on the spot.
And we still do not know how many will follow, also in other shipbreaking sites in the east.
Such a different feeling seeing a ship being launched and sailing on her maiden voyage to seeing the death of these memorable classics. Thanks for sharing.

No problem, I will keep posting. Inspiration will arrive next week.

Impressive! That's the way the cookie crumbles...

Tragic parade.

Yes, this picture is very representative of the situation... How many more will join?

No, but never three (soon four) such big ones together!

this is not the first time three cruise ships are berted at the breakers together

Just a surreal photo. Thank you for sharing.

These former rivals are going to be scrapped next to each other.
