Sapphire Princess

The largest cruise ship so far (and likely to be for some time) to visit New Zealand. Built in 2004 in Japan, (twice) she is of 115,875grt and seen here at Lyttelton in January 2005.
Originally to be called DIAMOND PRINCESS, she caught fire whilst under construction in Japan and was almost a total loss. Her sister also under construction and originally intended to be SAPPHIRE PRINCESS was named DIAMOND PRINCESS in her place.
If one looks really closely at her name on the starboard bow, one can see a D between the S and A. (Not visible in photo).

Brilliant, I thought I was the only one getting the wrong pic on the thread, when you open it, is it the correct picture?
