MS Angelina Lauro


Photo Album


 From the author’s private collection

Please Note: All photographs on this page have been lifted from a Flotta Lauro brochure, issued in the mid sixties when she was still a two class liner. Several photographs have been lifted from a later brochure during her early cruising days. I trust that you will enjoy going down memory lane of this fine liner having received a bright new look. Flotta Lauro stated in this brochure “A masterpiece of modern interior design.” She certainly was, both her interiors & 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.

Photographs on ssmaritime and associate pages are by the author or from the author’s private collection. In addition there are some images that have been provided by Shipping Companies and private photographers or collectors. Credit is given to all contributors. However, there are some photographs provided to me without details regarding the photographer/owner concerned. I hereby invite if owners of these images would be so kind to make them-selves known to me (my email address may be found on only), in order that due credit may be given. I know what it is like, I have seen a multitude of my own photographs on other sites, yet these individuals either refuse to provide credit or remove them when asked, knowing full well that there is no legal comeback when it comes to the net. However, let us show these charlatans up and do the right thing at all times and give credit where credit is due!

This notice covers all pages, although, and I have done my best to ensure that all photographs are duly credited and that this notice is displaced on each page, that is, when a page is updated!
