VIKING PRINCESS: 1950 - Deck plan from before the fire

Product Description

Viking Cruises: A fold-out (17" by 23") deck plan for the ill-fated VIKING PRINCESS.

Eight decks are shown in detail along with four b&w photos. The glimpses show the Savoy Restaurant, Night Club, Main Lounge, and Auditorium.

The plan is dated December 1964, just months after the bankrupt ship was acquired by the newly formed Viking Cruises. Originally built in 1950 as Chargeurs Reunis' LAVOISIER, in 1961 the ship was converted into the cruise liner RIVIERA PRIMA and operated by Caribbean Cruise Lines. That firm went belly up and Viking Cruises snapped up the vessel. Rebuilt and reflagged, the ship became the third largest Norwegian liner. She cruised the Caribbean for the American market.

Tragedy struck on April 8, 1966. While cruising off Cuba, an engine room fire got out of control and swept the ship. In the melee two passengers died of heart attacks, but the rest of the passengers and crew successfully evacuated. The blackened hulk was eventually towed to Bilbao for scrapping.

Excellent condition.
