Thanks for your kind words Frederik and Gerda.
With colors like this it comes in handy to see her last owner.

Excellent series shots and views of this funny looking MSC :lol:
It's nice to see her with that last spot Maersk blue on her bow.
Well done Marie-Anne.
Gerda & Frederik :-D

Hello Kjakel,

Thanks for keeping us up to date with that information.
We all know she is not the youngest one on the MSC fleet.
Let's hope we see her soon completely dressed in black!! :-P

Hi Brent,

I'm glad you like my photo of the MSC Nikita.
We get to see a lot of ships these day that have problems keeping the paint on.
Let's hope it gets better whe she get a new make over.

Hi Marie-Ann

Very nice shot, does not look like enough paint used to hide her Maersk history though. When she was built her hull was black so wonder if Maersk also had the same trouble trying to paint her colours out when they took her over.

Just keep your schedule, painting will be finished next docking :-x Nobody will notice that tiny dot of Maersk blue :-D
