the "LOVE BOAT" still going strong

M.V. "DISCOVERY" has been sailing for VOYAGES OF DISCOVERY since 2002, the ship was originally built as the ISLAND VENTURE in 1972 and became famous for the TV series "THE LOVE BOAT", today a classic, the ship is still going strong with a busy schedule for 2013, unfortunately her sister ship the "PACIFIC" is still facing a very uncertain future laid-up in Genoa, still defiant though. "DISCOVERY" is 20.186 GRT with capacity for 650 passengers and cruises at 18 knots. Photos above by Harald Oanes and Joao Abreu, bottom photo, one of her diesel engines, taken from the internet.
