If her flag is not the italian one, but the irish, I do not believe she was plying the Liverpool-Belfast line.

The MUNSTER used to sail on the overnight passage to Dublin with her sister LEINSTER and both were products of Harland & Wolff of Belfast in 1948. The MUNSTER became the Epirotiki Lines cruiseship ORPHEUS for a number of years and used to be seen around the Irish Sea in summer months cruising and called at Holyhead a number of times in 1970's and early 1980's

Munster and Leinster were the Liverpool to Dublin night service ships. Ulster Prince and Ulster Monarch were the Liverpool to Belfast pair.
