The Cunard cargo-passenger liner Media was built in 1947. She was sold to Cogedar Line in 1961 and rebuilt as the Europe-Australia emigrant ship Flavia. In 1968 she was chartered to Costa Line, who refitted her as a cruise ship. She operated Caribbean cruises from Miami, and was so successful, Costa bought her in 1969. Her engines became troublesome, so she was sold in 1982, having various owners and names until being scrapped in 1989, having never actually entered service again since leaving Costa.

thankyou I have that info and have seen the pages, I was hoping to get photo's that people had taken on the Aurelia when they sailed on it. I sailed on the Aurelia, but had no camera, and have only 3 photo's I took as the Aurelia was leaving port with my relatives aboard later on .
