Thank you all for your comments. She will spend the next 4 months at the shipyard; I expect she will come out looking better, both in technical and in aestethic sense...

Ugly...sans or not...contraptions around the funnel or not....ugly

Her new owners are not planning on aiming her at the Mickey Mouse end of the market and all of that stuff around her funnel is to be removed.

Good shot, Vlad. She certainly needs more than a shave and a haircut. Considering the water slides and other theme park tributes on the stack deck, perhaps Mickey Mouse will end up on the funnel before she sails? Enjoy your well deserved holiday.
Cheers, Don

Nice catch Vlad, good to see that she didn't went straight to the breakers.
Hope it will all work out well for her.

I was never a fan of the look of this ship or her sister but I am pleased that she has escaped the breakers beach. A pity really that this new company, Ambassador Cruises, couldn't have got her sister as well. At least in her new role all that junk around the funnel will be disposed of.

Good shot you tried your best Lappino to me there's nothing wrong with the shot ? it still better thank i could do i thought she just needed to go to the beauty parlour for a bit buffer & lipstick few hour's in the sauna & she'll be out on the sea's in no time i don't know why but i much prefer older vessel's to some of these new clothes iron shaped thing's around now maybe i am showing my 50 odd year's on earth ?

Excellent job Vlad!

I tried to take shot of her on 35mm film, but unfortunately my lens were not appropriate for Rijeka anchorage distance. Hopefully I will try to get her by boat. Nice to see you again shooting in Croatia.

Regards from Rijeka
