|MV Discovery approaching Helsingør/Helsingborg this morning.|
It is always nice to some of the older, classic cruise ships still in full use. One of them, cruise company Voyages of Discovery's MV Discovery was this morning on its way from Felixstowe to Copenhagen. The 168.8 m x 24.7 m ship has been in service since 1972. First it was called the Island Venture, then Island Princess, Hyundai Pungak and Platinum. Since 2002 onwards it carries its present name.
The passenger capacity for the ship, which is under Bermuda flag, is reported to be 698.
