MAXIM GORKY in Spitzbergen

The MAXIM GORKY looking the perfect ship for one's next cruise, hardly a candidate for the breakers at Alang and that fatal grounding at full speed ahead one final time before she starts to get striped of all fittings and that first fatal cut at the bow. In a matter of weeks her mast will colapse and at one point there will be only a dark rusted hull bottom with no relation to the futuristic and proud liner that slid the slipway in 1968 into the river Elbe waters...
So sad nobody could have been able to save the old HAMBURG.
