After being sold from Russian SovKomFlot (SCF) intended for NCL's Orient Line's MARCO POLO II, but the fuel costs some 10 years ago for a turbine steamship killed the project. There was also a commercial photo published on this MARCO POLO II (ex. Maksim Gor'kij etc.) in full blue hull, but rarely seen and published - maybe some enthusiast here have this publicity photo of "MARCO POLO II".
I have in my collection of cruise brochures one copy of Orient Lines Cruises feachering the first cruise program on Marco Polo 2. The brochure gives an artests impression of what the Maxim Gorky, Hanseatic, Hamburg would look like in her colours. Any pictures of her
have been artest impressions as she was sold for scrap before they could be applied to her.
