Photographs © John H. Luxton 2006

Transocean Tours' ASTOR called at Cóbh on June 01, 2006. Astor was ordered by the South African Marine Corporation (Safmarine) from  Howaldtswerk-Deutsche Werft, Hamburg to operate a Cape Town - Southampton service. However, the plans were abandoned and she spent time sailing for the Black Sea Shipping Company as the FYODOR DOSTOEVSKIY. She is currently chartered along with her near sister ASTORIA to the German Cruise operator Transocean Tours.
