Maybe the ducktail may be an asset to her performance in sailing ,but it surely not to her looks, she looks like she is dragging her skirts.

@Clive she looks inviting. I don't do the mega ships....

This is the Stockholm that collided with Andrea Doria in july, 25th, 1956.

In 2007, when she was named Athena, I took a cruise of almost 6 weeks aboard her. She was/is a lovely ship, very spacious and well laid out with attractive public rooms and cabins. Also, not being large she carries a comfortable amount of passengers rather than a 1,000 or more. I liked her a lot.

Thanks @Clive, still a tad long in the tooth ?

Remember, her plumbing and electrics are not 71 years old, she was totally gutted in the early mid-1990s to become Italia Prima. So much of her dates from that time, around 25 years ago.

When last did any of Shipspotting readers sail on her ? Plumbing etc all still in order ? Ps. How is yr plumbing @volker1948 ;) ?

Never !! I refuse to believe you're over 71 yrs - you sound like you're not a day over 50 !!!
volker1948 on Oct 09, 2019 16:01 (5 days ago)
