Ambassador II

The AMBASSADOR II was quite a big conversion job for Wallsend Dry Docks, turning her from a ferry to a casino, if my memory serves me correctly. Looking through Miramar, it looks as though she was built by Nobiskrug at Rendsburg in 1970 as PRINS OBERON and then in 78 became PRINZ OBERON - 84 NORDIC SUN - 86 CRUISE MUHIBAH - 89 MUNSTER - 93 AMBASSADOR - 94 AMBASSADOR II. So I guess this dates the photo to 1994.

You're a wee tad out, is it any wonder you cant remember the last time you got the drinks in.
This is her coming out of dock 23.05.1998. I have her down at Smith's in 1997.
