    The ex P & O Australia Cruises 1986 swedish built 47,678 grt ' Pacific Sun ' which was sold to the chinese and renamed ' Henna ' has had only a short time on the chinese market and was then laid up as it was reported that newer cruise ships on that market were attracting more passengers !

    She has now been reported as being sold to an indian ship breaking yard and today is off the coast of Malaya and cruising at about 9 knots as she heads to the ships graveyard.

    It is rather interesting that her older sister ship which now sails as the ' Magellan ', for the UK company Cruise and Maritime Voyages, retained her winged funnel and in her new colour scheme looks magnificent sailing at present on her maiden 120 night around the world cruise from the UK.

    Pictures below showing a very uncared for ex ' Pacific Sun ', which is now named ' Hen ', and on what could be her final voyage and a picture of her older sister ship ' Magellan ' !
