MS "EUROPA" OF 1981


The cruise ship "EUROPA" of 1981 was one of my favourite passenger ships ever, she was built in Germany by BREMEN VULKAN and delivered to HAPAG LLOYD in 1981, at the time she was one of the biggest cruise ships in the world and certainly one of the most luxurious operating cruises all over the world, when she was built she was 33810 GT with a cruising speed of 21 knots, today she is still sailing as the BLEU DE FRANCE, recently has been announced that the ship will be acquired by SAGA CRUISES in 2012 and will be renamed SAGA SAPPHIRE, I can´t wait to see this beautiful ship with SAGA livery, photos included, the ship in Lisbon in the eighties
