Shame to see it go. She did probably have a tough life given the route she was used on.

We used to see these big ships many times at Port Newark. Their appearance was quite unmistakable. ACL certainly seems to have gotten their money's worth out of them.

The international orange paint across the top of the bridge was a common feature on board ships operating in the English Channel/North Sea region. In foggy or hazy conditions, which frequently prevail in that part of the world, that orange band is frequently the first visual indication one detects of the presence of an oncoming vessel, even in the case of ships as large as this one.
