On September 5, APOLLO finally arrived in Aliaga for recycling.
She was one of the famous nine “Papenburger Sisters”, built by Meyer Werft in 1970.
Six were built for Viking Line, and three for the Mexican Government.
Apollo was sold in 1999 to Labrador Marine Inc. of St. John’s (NFL) and entered service in May 2000 on the St. Barbe (Newfoundland) to Blanc Sablon (Labrador) route for the Woodward Group of Canada.
