I think it was in Greece, but can anyone advise at which yard(s) the "Port Melbourne" and "Port Sydney" of 1955 were rebuilt into their current conditions as "Princess Danae" and "Ocean Monarch" respectively?

Photographic evidence would indicate that nothing was done to change the shape of their hulls from the sheer strake down but can anyone confirm (apart from the cutting of port holes) that nothing was done to their hulls.

I believe their main engines are the originals and it is all credit to their builders (H & W Belfast and Swan Hunter & Wigham Richardson respectively) that with hulls of 50 years of age, the current owners are still confident enough to be updating at least one of them - it looks as if "Ocean Monarch" has had penthouse suites added for'd of the funnel in the last year?
