Marine Atlantic's 'Marine Cruiser' at Sydney 1981

Marine Cruiser is shown here in Winter storage at Point Edward, Sydney Harbour, Cape Breton, NS. She is a charter vessel, possibly Norwegian? Note the crown on bow partially painted over. Any guesses as to real identity. Astern is 'Ambrose Shea' another Marine Atlantic ferry. Normally these ships ran between CapeBreton and Newfoundland.
