The cruise ship MARCO POLO arriving at the bay of Funchal on 31 December 2014 for the New Year's fireworks.
The MARCO POLO turns 50 year old in 2015. She was built in the East Germany yards in Rostock as the second of the five ships of the IVAN FRANKO-class, and sailed for many years as ALEXANDR PUSHKIN. She is now the largest survivor of the former URSS passenger ship fleet and looks impressive.
A pity that CMV funnel markings are so dull, this fine ship deserves a more atractive funnel colour.
