1995 Fifth conversion
||Start of conversions in Genoa: modifications
of foredeck and stack. Removal of derricks
On 3 April 1995, at the end of the South Africa
season, she returned to the Mediterranean and was sent to Genoa for that
originally scheduled for the beginning of 1995.
Now the derricks on the foredeck, which were
still original fittings of the time of emigrant service to South America,
were removed. The funnel got fins, which should divert the smoke of the Diesel
engines upward, so that the passengers were not bothered. Additionally the
rail of the foredeck was raised a little bit, probably for aesthetic reasons.
