Glad you liked it Brent. Yes, I expect she could tell a few tales!

Hi Jonesy

Nice to see such an interesting vessel, over her career seems to have worked for a number of the major operaters - P&O, NYK (ACX), Zim, MSC, and also at least one shortlived affair, she would have been lucky to have got a full Europe/Far East round voyage in before the Durga outfit when belly up. And still looks good.
