Sad to see her like this, she was a grand old lady

She was launched as a freighter by the name Christian V, according to a Belgian news bulletin and renamed shortly after. That, and her lenght are the few details I found on her.
thanks for the information.

Built 1952 at Aalborg by Aalborg Vaerft A/S, hull no. 93, for Det Nordenfjeldske Damps. A/B, Trondheim. IMO 5140300. 265'1" x 40'2" x 14'9;" 2173 gt, 1101 nt; twin 8-cylinder Atlas Diesels, 340 x 570mm, geared to a single shaft, 3040-bhp. Converted to a passenger ferry in 1983 and renamed *Håkon Gamle,* owned by Factoring Finans A/S, Oslo. Renamed *Håkon Jarl* (1983). Used as the floatel Diamond Princess at Antwerp since 1997. I can find no documentation that she was named *Christian V,* but she may have been so named unofficially before she was moved from Oslo to Antwerp.

Hi Stan, she was indeed a norwegian boat, sailed on the hurtigruta, from bergen to kirkenes. She sailed there from 1952-1982, here is a link:

She looks rather awful nowadays compared to her former livery.

But thats me.
