MV Artania arriving at Gothenburg

Photographed on 17 July 2013 from the Nya Älvsborg fortress.
Built by Wärtsilä for the P&O; Princess Group at the Helsinki New Shipyard in Helsinki, Finland, and named Royal Princess by Diana, Princess of Wales, at a ceremony in Southampton, United Kingdom on 15 November 1984.
She was transferred to the P&O; fleet in April 2005 and renamed Artemis by Prunella Scales. Artemis is one of the few cruise ships that do not have any inside cabins. Artemis was the smallest and oldest ship in the P&O; cruises fleet.
In 2010 the British woman Sarah Breton took charge of Artemis, becoming only the second female in the world to captain a major cruise ship and the first for P&O.;
On 22 September 2009 it was announced by P&O; Cruises that the ship had been sold to Artania Shipping for an undisclosed sum of money. She continued to sail for P&O; Cruises until 22 April 2011, when she passed to Phoenix Reisen as MV Artania.
She has 8 passenger decks and 594 passenger cabins.
