Olympia looks suspiciously like the ex Queen Anna Maria ex Empress of Britain. Can anyone confirm this? If this is so her predecessors only had a free standing mast, only 12 lifeboats and less of a rake on the bow.

The latest information I have Paul, is that she is called REGAL EMPRESS and is owned by Imperial Majesty Cruise. She is their only ship and they operate very short duration cruises out of Fort Lauderdale. (182 Cruises per year)

Olympia had a very long and successful career in cruising as the Regal Empress. Even in her last incarnation with Imperial Majesty, she enjoyed a reputation for good food and traditional elegance. Sadly, within the last month (August 2009) she has been beached for demolition at Alang, India.
