The Stefan Batory of the Polskie Linie Oceaniczne, Gdynia. Launched as Maasdam for the Holland America Line, sold to Poland in 1968. Her first transatlantic journey for the new owners was 11 April 1969 from Gdynia via Copenhagen, Tilbury, Quebec to Montreal. She served this route until late 1980s, but also made cruising. She was broken up in 2000 in Turkey.

My all time favourite ship on which I did many happy voyages. Many thanks Magnar for posting such a fine photo of her. Derek

A favourite of mine also. I did a round trip sailing on her to Poland (out from Southampton and back to Tilbury) and then some years later on her very first Norwegian fjord cruise. She was an absolute delight.

I think she also made cruises to Cuba. There were always many Polish advisors and engineers helping building up the new Cuba after the Casino and gangster econmy downfall and breakdown in early 1959.

I am unaware of the Stefan Batory being used in that role. During the winter months Stefan Batory would undertake lengthy cruises to the Caribbean and with calls at Havana but these were cruises that were marketed in the UK. Certainly a whole variety of Russian liners were used to transport 'technicians' to Cuba.
