Odessa welcomed «ASTOR» liner

«Astor» liner, former BSSC passenger fleet flagship «Fedor Dostoyevskiy», visited Odessa. PICTURE STORY.

On October 29, 2012, “Astor” liner docked to the 15th mooring line of Odessa Marine Port’s passenger complex. The 177 m long vessel of 26.6 m length and 5.8 m draught under the Bahamian flag was transporting 396 passengers.

The liner arrived from Sevastopol (Ukraine) and left for Constanta (Romania).









MS Astor is a cruise ship owned by the Germany-based Premicon, under charter to the Germany-based Transocean Tours. She was built in 1987 under the name Astor by Howaldtswerke-Deutsche Werft (HDW), Kiel in West Germany for the Mauritius-based Marlan Corporation, although originally ordered by the South African Safmarine as a combined ocean liner/cruise ship for the Southampton-Cape Town service. In 1988 the ship was sold to the Soviet Union-based Black Sea Shipping Company and renamed MS Feodor Dostoevskiy, but spent her time under charter to various West German cruise lines. In 1995 she reverted to the name Astor. Since 1996 she has been under charter to Transocean Tours.

On 28 November 2008, an attempted pirate attack on the Astor in the Gulf of Oman was prevented by the German frigate Mecklenburg-Vorpommern.
