She struck an uncharted coral reef in the Solomon Islands in April 2000 and became a constructive total loss.
Thanks for your comments about the photo. I took the ship from my boat just before sunset.

Hi Marc,

excellent view of this ship. She was built in my hometown Bremerhaven in the 1970ies. In the meantime she's broken up. She ran aground somewhere on a cruise trip (I suppose it was South America). All people were saved from the ship. Over night marauders came and left the ship in such a desolate condition that she was declared total loss.

Regards,
Holger
