She sailed for sunnier climes, on a sixteen night Azores and Canaries cruise.
This is quite an interesting one ! Originally built in 1984 as the Royal Princess, she was the first cruise vessel ever to feature all outside cabins (AOC). The ship was built by Finish shipbuilder Wartsila for P&O Cruises and was named by Diana, Princess of Wales, in Southampton on 15th November 1984. She subsequently became Artemis and currently sails as Artania for Phoenix Reisen. As Pacific Princess she was used as the trial cruise vessel during the evaluation of Dover Cruise Terminal.
Classic International Cruises Athena. Originally named the Stockholm and owned by Swedish America Line. On the 25th July 1956 she collided with the Italian Line vessel Andrea Doria in what became one of history's most infamous maritime disasters. The Doria remained afloat for eleven hours before finally capsizing and sinking. Forty six people were killed in what was the last major transatlantic passenger vessel disaster before aircraft became the preferred method of travel between Europe and America.
She is now Portuscale's Azores.
