I have sailed on her may times since 2008 when I have been holidaying on the Isle Of Wight.
She was built in Port Glasgow by Ferguson Shipbuilders as Yard Number 92 in 1994.
As part of a group investment programme she sailed to Gdansk October 2003 where she had a new mid section inserted which extended her length to 93m, she was also fitted with a new high level vehicle deck which extended her vehicle capacity to approximately 200 cars and had some interior refit work undertaken which included a new entrance lobby, bar and cafeteria area.
She can carry 215 cars on three decks and 895 passengers.
In 2015 she was the second vessel in the fleet to have a major refurbishment which included a 55% increase in internal seats, two new lounges (one of which is pet friendly), a new contemporary design, the inclusion of air conditioning throughout, free Wi-Fi in all passenger areas and lift and wheelchair access to the outside promenade deck.
The new areas can be seen on the top promenade deck which was previously uncovered.
