Iíve not many notices about this ship, except that I remembered her in every Strintzis Linesís brochure when I was a child and I noticed that she lacked the funnel (or is very well camouflaged!). She served Cephalonia until 1993, when she was sold to Katapoliani, a small company which engaged her on a route sailing from Syros, the main port of the service, to Paros, Naxos, Ios and Santorini, sometimes calling also at smaller islands on the route. On 1999, when she reached the permitted age limit, was sold to Tanzania and Katapoliani ceased its operations.
