PORTUSCALE livery on m.s. PORTO ex-ARION


Portuscale Cruises, the new Portuguese cruise operator that purchased four of the former Classic International Cruises passenger ships, the FUNCHAL, the LISBOA (ex-PRINCESS DANAE), the PORTO (ex-ARION) and the AZORES (ex-ATHENA) put the PORTO into the Navalrocha drydock nº 1 on 16 May to complete the refurbishment and refit of this classic little ship, and yesterday, on 29 May 2013 she was being repainted in the company's new livery: black hull, yellow funnel and black top. The funnel will have  the company logo on each side. 

In these fine colours the Company ships shall look truly the classic old girls they are. Next in the dry dock at Navalrocha is the FUNCHAL, and she returns to cruise service on 8 August 2013. A lot of money is being spent to return all four ships to tip top operational status, and passenger facilities are also being revamped on all ships. Let's wish the new venture is a success...
