Jupiter

Jupiter, in Stavanger I believe. She shall have lived a double life, as Jupiter on the Bergen Newcastle run in summer and as Black Watch between the Canaries and Europe in winter. Built in 1966 for both Fred Olsen and Det Bergenske Dampskipsselskap.

It's definitely Stavanger I can confirm that so you can take the question mark off!
