I believe she is still with some buyer. Might have been changed by now. I first went on board was back in '83, her maiden visit to Bermuda, Stunning ship. Sailed in her as SAGA PEARL three times. One of my favourite ships. Right size. No crowds. Good bars!

The photo is fine She looked good in SAF colours.

A common sight in Portsmouth. Sad to see another of these "Traditional" sized cruise ships go :(
