MS Expedition

MS Expedition - an expedition cruise ship owned and operated by the Canada-based Gap Adventures. She was built as a car/passenger ferry in 1972 by Helsingör Skibs & Maskinbygg, Helsingør, Denmark as MS Kattegat for Jydsk Færgefart A/S. Subsequently she sailed under the names MS nf Tiger for P&O Normandy Ferries, MS Tiger for Townsend Thoresen and MS Ålandsfärjan for Viking Line, prior to conversion into a cruise ship in 2008.

What's her tenuous connection with Orkney? - apart from being berthed in Stromness harbour in May 2009.

She is the sister ship to the former P&O Ferry "St Sunniva" and she also still carries parts of the original Danish engines removed from the "Sunniva"(which were quite rare) when P&OSF re-engined her for the Orkney & Shetland service.
