The cruise ship in front of the Ark Royal looks like she could be one of the Royal Viking Line sisters........

I have downloaded the photo and enlarged it, and on second thoughts the cruise ship does not look like a RVL ship, the front of the Bridge and foredeck layout looks different........

Cheers Frank

Regent Sun...............(y)
The REGENT SUN was completed in 1964 by Chantiers de I'Atlantique, St Nazaire, France for the Israeli Zim Line as their combined transatlantic/cruise liner SHALOM.

In 1967 the SHALOM was sold to the German Atlantic Line becoming their second HANSEATIC.

In 1973 the HANSEATIC was sold to Home Line becoming the DORIC, she was a replacement for the loss of the company's HOMERIC.

In 1981 the DORIC was sold to the Greek shipping company Royal Cruise Line and renamed ROYAL ODYSSEY. Before entering service with the company in 1982 she received a four month refit where her funnel was rebuilt, her topmost deck expanded and a bulbous bow fitted.

In 1988 after the delivery of the new build CROWN ODYSSEY to Royal Cruise Line the ROYAL ODYSSEY was sold to Regency Cruises and renamed the REGENT SUN.

In 1995 Regency Cruises collapsed and the REGENT SUN was laid up at Freeport in the Bahamas where she remained until 2001. After several failed attempts in search of a buyer she went through several changes in ownership but remained throughout laid up in Freeport.

In June 2001 the REGENT SUN departed Freeport, Bahamas under the name of SUN II bound for Indian ship breakers. While en route to India under tow the SUN II started taking on water on the 25 July while outside South African territorial waters. The South African authorities disallowed the ship to enter South African waters, and on the 26 July 2001 she sank off Cape St. Francis in the eastern cape.
