Regal Princess in Vladivostok


A postcrossing postcard from Alla who lives in Vladivostok and actually studies at the University of Southern Qld.

Vladivostok is Russia’s largest pacific sea port, and home to the Russian Pacific Fleet. It is located near to the Russian border with China and North Korea.

Among the numerous naval vessels, you can see two cruise ships. The one on the left is Regal Princess, which was renamed Pacific Dawn in 2007. I am not able to name the cruise ship on the right.  My friend Geoff from Oz Cruise Club tells me the ship on the right is Norwegian Wind (now Superstar Aquarius), which cruises the Asia Pacific region most of the year.

Thanks for the postcard, Alla!

Originally built in 1991 at the Fincatieri shipyard in Italy, she was named “Regal Princess”, and operated as part of the Princess Cruise Line until 2007.

She was sold to P&O Australia in 2007 and renamed “Pacific Dawn”. She currently operates out of Sydney and cruises the South Pacific.

This postcard was sent via Tin Can Mail at Tin Can Island in Tonga.
