Is she classed as a private yacht nowadays? I guess she is one of two cruise yachts built by Finnyards at Rauma in early-1990's for Finnish Delfin cruises.

No, still operating as a cruise liner, most that call at Stanley are either going to or coming from South Georgia.

Of course she is ice strenghtened, as she is built by Finnyards for a Finnish shipowner. Normally no Baltic Sea shipowner build ship below Finnish-Swedish ice class 1 A or 1 A Super.

Many of the ships that sail to S Georgia and Antarctica aren't.... this would be one of the better ships in the trade.
