A chance in a life time that I can't miss to experience and behold the oldest passenger ship, the MV Doulos.
I've heard about the floating bookstore years back when I was a kid but I didn't have the chance to see it. So this is an opportunity that I couldn't pass as the MV Doulos is going to retire in 2010
A bit history about MV Doulos ...
- She was built back in 1914 and was named the SS Medina.
- In 1948 she was acquired by a Panamanian company and renamed her the SS Roma.
- In 1952 she was again resold and this time acquired by an Italian company. They converted her from a steamship to a motor vessel and renamed her the MV Franca C.
- In 1977, she was acquired by a German charity organization GBA and renamed her the MV Doulos (Greek for servant).
