Originally built at John Browns Clydebank just before QE2 in 1965 as "Kungsholm" for Swedish America Line.
Sold to P&O Cruises in 1978 and became "Sea Princess" big refit included removal of For'd funnel which ruined her appearance in most folk's opinion. Later renamed Victoria 1 1995 towards end of P&O/Princess service. Sold to Liberia Flag company in 2002 re-named Mona Lisa and served many mainly German Cruise charterers till late summer 2010 when she was laid up in Greece. Last heard of en route to Oman to become an accommodation ship - it is possible her "quality" fittings may not comply with latest SOLAS fire regs.
