Description:
Picture taken at 8.00 h in Frederikshavn/Denmark on 06/01/2008.

On 07/01/2008 she made her last official tour for Color Line on the route Frederikshavn - Oslo. Unfortunately she has been sold to the Mediterranean ("Thank you", Color Line! :-x ). My planned farewell cruise which should start on 04. January was cancelled because she couldn't land in Frederikshavn due to heavy easterly storms. The storm rised on the next day so she went to Hirtshals on the westcoast of Denmark instead (which was her Danish harbour from 1994-2006!). So my cruise started here but ended on the 6th in Frederikshavn.

Then on 11/01 she came back from Oslo to Frederikshavn and has been boarded by her new owners from Corsica Ferries and got her new name "Mega Smeralda" painted on the hull. Today, 22-01-2008, at 13:30 h she has left our northern waters forever....
For some last pictures look to shipsforum.dk - thanks a lot to Peter Jensen for them!

Hi,

a superb goodbye shot! :-D
I never saw her on my trip to Oslo a few years ago. Sad to loose a great and good looking ferry like her

Regards
Cedric
