It is absolutely amazing (and sad) to think that MARIANN 9 was another virtual museum when she went to the Alang breakers in 2001. Laid up for over a decade and with very sporadic use since her last sailing for Companhia Portuguesa de Transports Maritimos (the amalgamation of CNN, CCN, and Empresa Insulana) in the mid-1970s, she was chock full of original liner crockery and silver. This stylized "N" (for "Nacional") logo was apparently the latter day CNN symbol and dates from the late 1960s or early 1970s. There are two different manufacturers, depending on the piece: Sampson Bridgewood or Britamic Lifelong, both "Ironstone" and from England.
