THANK YOU FOR YOUR COMMENTS AND FAVS

The original name of the ship was "City of York" and was built in 1952 in Newcastle, England. The Cruise liner departed London in November 1953, and maintained its service until sold to Michael A. Karageorgis, Piraeus in 1971, when she was renamed as "Mediterranean Sky" and started the first line between Patras - Italy till the late 80s. Due to the companies’ financial situation, the "Mediterranean Sky" was arrested in 1997, whilst in Patras. She remained there till 1999. Then she was towed to Eleusis laid up and was virtually abandoned. Then, in late November, 2002, she started taking on water and began to list. In order to stop her sinking, she was towed to shallow water and was grounded. In January 2003 the ship keeled over on her side in Eleusis Bay where she remains awaiting her fate.

It's an interesting picture.  But aren't they worried about that ship polluting the water?

An actual Vickers built ship, sad end for her. Originally worked the London-Capetown route and was quite successful with her 3 sisters. Can't say I'm a fan of the remodelling they did on her though! Nice picture :)

:-) Thank you! I wonder that as well and would give it a go but the water is very polluted to dive with a normal suit due to Oil plants and Shipyards operating in the area :alientwo: (though it has fish). Besides that i don't trust the ships position...;-)
