SS Norway

Ex SS France - currently Blue Lady


Bremerhaven – Page Three


This page contains a remarkable selection of photographs of SS Norway berthed in Bremerhaven. These magnificent photographs were taken and provided to me by Sandra and Andreas Tietgen of Germany. I am grateful to them and I know that all who visit this SS France, Norway feature will enjoy them as much as I do! Obviously, these photographs of SS Norway departing Bremerhaven on May 23, 2005 requires little commentary as each picture tells its own sad story as this great liner heads off for Malaysia. Upon arrival at Port Klang, instead of her being taken to a yeard to be repaired and returned to service as a Star Cruises ship, the breakers were invited on board within days and two weeks later they were on board making their bids!


 For an old girl she certainly looks a marvellous sight

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!
