Built as Ferdinand De Lesseps, she was renamed Delphi in 1968 and was also used in the Med until March of 1974 when she arrived at Cartagena for
scrapping. However she was not broken up and was laid up at Piraeus
until bought by Perla Cruises and renamed La Perla in 1977. In 1980 her name was changed to La Palma and she was registered as owned by Intercruise under whose banner she sailed for many years. In 1997 she went to Louis Cruise Lines and shortly thereafter laid up. In August/September of 2002 it was reported that she was sold to Indian interests for breaking up. She finally made her final voyage to the breakers and was beached at Alang in July of 2003. She was also sister ship to the ill fated Oceanos of Epirotiki.
