Pictured above, the Star Cruises SuperStar Taurus. The 25,600-ton vessel currently sails as the Louis Cristal and was built in 1980 for Viking Line (as a cruise ferry) as the Viking Saga.

She was later rebuilt into a cruise vessel, Sall Albatross, and suffered a fire in 1990. The ship was rebuilt in the early 1990s, following the fire, and then partially sank in 1994, before starting service for Norwegian Cruise Line as the Leeward, and then SuperStar Taurus for Star (pictured), followed by a stint for Silja Line before going to Louis Group.
