Well done Pedro, for capturing this sad event. What a shame I never got to cruise on her as planned in 2012.

Has her superstructure been rebuilt the last 20 years, looking at 20 years old pictures as ASTRA I?

Great photo of a noteworthy event in this ship's history, but why in casualties category?

Yes, very sad, especially when one remembers her welcome back to Lisbon some years ago when there was lots of optimism for the future of Portuscale Cruises. I don't think Porto operated a single cruise for them.

Incredibly sad sight....

En-route to the breakers.
