Got a message from the moderators that this picture was moved from "Ocean Liners" to "Modern Cruiseships" in the Gallery,
I do not agree as this 40 year old vessel which has now been scapped needs to be with the likes of "Rotterdam" etc under Ocean Liners.
Anyway not important, but I cannot consider a 40 year old vessel to be a Modern Cruiseship.

Ahoy Jan,
Sure it's a " Classic Cruise/Passenger Ship" and has nothing from being a Modern Cruiseship.
LOA: 175,77m. Lpp: 155,00m. B: 25,00m. D: 8,090m. G.T.: 21.275. DWT: 5.696.
1968 VEB Mathias Thesen Werft Wismar. Yard No. 128.
EX-SHOTA RUSTAVELLI, 1968 (Original Name). ASSEDO, 2001.
Arrives Alang, India in 28/11/2003 to be broken up.

I moved her Jan, because in her entire career she was not employed as an Ocean Liner. I did not move Rotterdam because she started life as a liner. There are even older ships currently employed as cruise ships in the Modern Cruiseship category. Perhaps the word "Modern" could be dropped, but I think it is clear that any passenger ship working in the modern industry of cruising is by default a Modern Cruise Ship.

You can see a picture here at the breakers yard, halfway the site.
Also some other pictures of well known vessels which were broken up there.
