Saga stipulated that no photographs were to be taken of the ship during the scrapping. The surveyor was on site was there to ensure that all legal requirements as far as disposal of any asbestos, lead, unused oils etc. The surveyor also took photos that were given to Saga. All of this material is not available and is kept in the company vault. This photo shown above was one that was taken 'illegally'. To my knowledge this is the only photo that has ever surfaced.

When the ship arrived in the yard the ship was hosed down with fresh water. All flags up. The ship was clean and even all of the beds were made up! A team of the final voyage did all of the work when the handover was made. Sad ending of a great ship.
