Deck Plans for the MTS Apollon II & the Orpheus II


MTS Orpheus II seen around 1994, ten years after she had her new raked bow fitted

and a massive refit. She had become a magnificent and a greatly loved cruise ship!


Sadly the MTS Apollon II for some reason was never as popular as her sister-ship the MTS Orpheus

therefore Apollon II was sold in 1981, whilst the Orpheus sailed on and was finally sold 19 years later

A Brief Introduction to the plans:

On this page there are three Deck Plans on this page, one covering the MTS Apollo II and two of the MTS Orpheus, she had a major refit during the winter (off season) of 1983/84 and countless changes were made to the ship. Plans are therefore from different dates, the Apollon II and the Orpheus II, each have a plan from 1973 and then the Orpheus II also has a Deck Plan from after her major refit in 1984 - dated 1994.

Deck Plans 1. MTS Apollon II & 2. MTS Orpheus II:





Deck Plan 3. MTS Orpheus II:

On this updated plan is from after her off season 1983/84 extensive refit, and thus there are a number of changes, but the most obvious is the removal of all the forward cabins on Nereus Deck, leaving those cabins located aft.





Here is a very rare photograph of the Orpheus seen not long after her refit and she is

seen here on the west coast of America in 1970 having been chartered by West Tours

“Blue Water Liners sailing to the distant shores.
I watched them come, I watched them go and I watched them die.”
