French Line's FLANDRE of 1952

A beautiful liner, the FLANDRE of 1952 served the French Line for  almost 16 years until sold and delivered in February 1968 to Costa Line, when she became the CARLA C. Between late 1968 and August 1970 the CARLA C operated under charter to Princess Cruises and in 1974 was sent to Amsterdam to have the steam turbines replaced by diesel engines. This refit allowed the CARLA C to operate under Costa colours until her sale to Epirotiki in 1992. Renamed PALLAS ATHENA, she was lost by fire in March 1994 in Piraeus and scrapped in Aliaga in 1995.
