New Marathon Cruise Line
Items from MV QUEEN CONSTANTINA.
My heart goes out to the principals of New Marathon Cruise Lines. They purchased the well-worn, structurally challenged QUEEN ELENI (ex 33 ORIENTALES, CITY OF RHODOS), renamed her QUEEN CONSTANTINA, and spent a king's ransom redecorating her for Cyprus-based cruise service in 2001. The ship was, despite their best attempts, a mess.
In the process, the company invested a fortune in logo flatware that seems to have been inspired by the Universal Studios logo of yesteryear with an orbiting body around a planet or star. I recall being impressed by it when visiting the ship in 2001 just after 9-11 put the company into bankruptcy and the QUEEN CONSTANTINA was laid up. A fire snuffed out any hope for her return to service and, after the usual battery of law suits were settled, she eventually made her way to Alang in 2006.
I bought a variety of dishes from her.
