MIKHAIL LERMONTOV: 1972 - Deck plan booklet w/ interior photos

Product Description
Baltic Shipping Company: Beginning in the 1960s, the Soviets built five big sisters liners, beginning with the IVAN FRANKO in 1963 and finishing up with the subject of this deck plan, the MIKHAIL LERMONTOV, in 1972. These ships were hard currency generators for the faltering Russian economy.

They were also handsome looking ships. Frank Braynard sailed on the LERMONTOV in 1980 and was delighted that she had a glass enclosed Promenade Deck where you could walk around the ship fully protected. Vincent Messina reported that her cabins reminded him of railway compartments.

This undated sixteen-page booklet covers all eight passenger decks and includes eight interior photos plus the handsome cover portrait. The cabin photos really do look like railway compartments.

The ship was cruising in New Zealand waters in February 1986 when the captain decided to take a short cut. Unfortunately an uncharted reef was in the way. Does this bring to mind a certain modern-day Costa captain? A 40' gash sent the ship to the bottom where today she is a popular diving spot.
