for phot's of Norway from the early days to middle age to the present, including the first cut. They cut her nose off.
It's pretty much stripped, and has been dragged well up to the beach.

That's sad to see, Mark. Brings back memories of the first cruise that my wife and I took, on Carnival Cruise Lines TSS Mardi Gras, which was the former Empress of Canada and still had the CP or CN logo on the stack. Great fun. Too bad they have phased out these old, great ships for those new mega cruisers.

Serious cutting has now started on the unfortunate Norway.
Copied news release;
Alang Update
January 21: BLUE LADY (ex NORWAY, FRANCE) is beginning to succumb to the cutting process as her mast and the greater portion of her two top aluminum decks come down. ANASTASIS (ex VICTORIA) is mostly gone and EGNATIA III remains on the beach awaiting clearance for demolition.
