Farewell to the France

The SS France, one of the worlds greats grand dams of the sea is headed to scrap.. Unfortunately that's the fate of many old cruise lines.

Norwegian Cruise Lines rechristaned this ship The SS Norway after they purchased the ship in 1979. She was taken over by Star Cruises in 2000, and renamed Blue Lady in 2003. She hadn't sailed since then when a fired onboard killed 8 crewman.

This great old lady of the sea is now lost to the breakers.
