The ship’s last refurbishment was in November 2014 in Holland.

The work was done at the Damen shipyard. The dry-dock stay featured an extensive vessel special survey, followed by regular maintenance work, high-pressure hull washing, painting, valves overhaul, lifeboats maintenance, recertification, gangway platforms repair, etc.



She represents one of the last real ocean liners that offer a comfortable ‘round the world’ cruise in a classic maritime setting which sets her apart from any of the modern large cruise ships that are designed for maximum capacity and short cruises only. Due to her average large size of the cabins she would also be a good choice for a floating hotel and beautiful feature for any port. She is in good operational condition and will be available for delivery without delay.


Please inquire only with approved projects and funding.
