Mona Lisa ~ Photo Page & Deck Plan

This page is divided in Two Parts: Part One will feature a number of photographs of the Mona Lisa’s Interiors that I happen to have available. Part Two contains her Deck Plan complete with a description of venues and facilities directly below each deck! Although after her 2008 refit there may have been some changes, but I have not been able to obtain a copy to date!

I trust you will enjoy this final page covering one of the great classic style ships that commenced her days as the magnificent 1966 built two-funnelled MS Kungsholm and was rebuilt in 1978/79 to become a very different looking yet after her P&O/Princess days she became the delightful and very popular MV Mona Lisa!

An wonderful view of the popular cruise ship, the MV Mona Lisa

Please Note: As you can see from Page Three that after her days as the Mona Lisa and her sub-charter operating as the MV Oceanic II she was sold in 2000 to become a hotel on Oman. She was converted to become a luxury hotel and was name Veronica. However, she was closed down and laid up in 2003 and she slowly began to look more and more neglected. But finally she was sold in October 2015 to Indian breakers and she arrived off the ship brakers beach at Alang on November 13, 2015.
