Built in 1968 as Princesse Astrid she is pictured shortly after arrival at Piraeus. Conversion work had just started to turn her into Bari Express. She went onto become Express Hermes and had several good service years but has since been broken up.
Unbelievable photo of a real legend. It seems like a dream.
The "Princess" wrote a second great story in Greece and Italy as "Bari Express"and "Express Hermes". She and her sister ship ("Georgios Express" travelled for many years for the family of Ventouris (at the beginning for Ventouris Ferries and after 1986 "Georgios Express" for Ventouris Sea Lines)
