Ivan Franko - earlier identified as Maxim Gorky

Cruise ship Ivan Franko 1964 built, 23000 GRT. Seen here easing her way toward her berth at Alexandria in August 1993.

Editor: This photo was previously identified as the Maxim Gorky;
The Black Sea Shipping Company's 1969 built, 24,981gt. cruise ship MAXIM GORKY reg.Bs. (ex Maksim Gorky-92, Hanseatic-74, Hamburg-73).

After a short debate (see below) this error was corrected.
