Peter,
a nice shot of this early MSC vessel, originally built for Lloyd Triestino by Italcantieri at Genoa & was the second of four non identical sisters built 5 years apart.
This one was sold to MSC in 1990 and renamed MSC Luisa in 1992.
They were heavy drinkers -190 t.p.d. - 2 Westinghouse steam turbines producing 38,000 shp for 23.5 knots.
It's a wonder they remained in service as long as they did, even for MSC !
She ended her days at the Indian breakers at Alang in December 1998.
Much appreciated.(Thumb)
Rick
