Page Three - Photo Album


Please Note: All photographs on this page have been lifted from a Flotta Lauro brochure from my private collection. This brochure was issued in the mid sixties when she was still a two-class liner. In addition several images have been lifted from a later brochure that I have of the ship during her early cruising days. I trust that you will enjoy going down memory lane of this fine liner and cruiser ship that received a bright new modern interior. Flotta Lauro stated in this brochure that she was … “A masterpiece of modern interior design and she certainly was, and I mean, both her interiors and her sleek exterior!

Angelina Lauro the Cruise Ship

The following photographs are from a Flotta Lauro brochure of the cruise ship Angelina Lauro. Although she retained her original funnel markings, she was marketed by Costa Lines who later chartered her outright and gave her the traditional Costa funnel, yellow with a large blue C for Costa.
