The cruise ship "OCEAN COUNTESS" visited Liverpool yesterday for the first time this year. Built in Denmark by BURMEISTER & WAIN at Copenhagen in 1975 and fitted-out in Italy by INMA at La Spezia, the ship was completed in 1976 as the "CUNARD COUNTESS" to be operated by the CUNARD LINE. Since 1996 the ship was owned by AWAIN CRUISES, ROYAL OLYMPIC CRUISES, ROYAL OLYMPIA CRUISES and since 2004 by the Greek based company MAJESTIC INTERNATIONAL CRUISES. "OCEAN COUNTESS" has been on charter to the 2009 established Dartford based company C.M.V-CRUISE AND MARITIME VOYAGES since 2010, before joining the MARCO POLO she was refitted and tailored mainly for the UK cruise passengers.
