Klosters MV Sunward at berth 49 Southampton Eastern Docks sometime during the summer of 1966, this was the berth she used at Southampton and a link span was provided for her at that berth with associated car and freight marshalling areas alongside number 6 dry dock, the passengers used the passenger terminal facilitys at berth 46 and walked across from there to the ship at berth 49.

Klosters Sunward Ferries operated a short lived ro/ro passenger ferry service from Southampton to Vigo, Lisbon and Algerciras from June to late Sepetember 1966 untill being withdrawn after the service was deemed a failure.

Klosters sent the Sunward to Miami to cruise the Bahamas from where Norwegian Cruise Lines was founded and as such made her claim to fame as being the first all year round cruise ship to be based out of Miami.

Quite an attractive looking vessel and she must have made her mark back in 1966 albeit a shortlived one when operating as a ferry to the Iberian Peninsular.
