Uncertain future for LISBOA

LISBOA built in 1955 as the PORT MELBOURNE is for sale, the ship is operated by the 2013 formed "Portuscale Cruises" after been acquired from C.I.C. in 2013, when she was sailing as the PRINCESS DANAE. Last March she was reportedly sold for scrap and meant to leave Lisbon for Turkey mid March, an ocean-going tug even arrived in Lisbon to tow LISBOA but the sale didn't materialize, will there be hope once again for this beautiful ship ? she's never sailed for her new owners after 2013, the ship was dry docked late 2013 and a lot of works were carried out but were interrupted, apparently the ship needed a lot more repairs than originally antecipated, she's been in Lisbon since late 2013 laid-up, will she sail again ? we hope so.
