What a beautiful cruise ship, and what a better time to photograph her than this amazing morning light! Was built in 1970 in Wärtsilä Helsinki New Shipyard, Finland. This vessel was renamed since was built down with four names. Its original lenght was 177.70 meters long but after a refit made in 1981 she now has 205 meters long. In 2005 was instaled four new MAN 7L32/40 engines that give the vessel 14.000KW of combined power.
