The Stella Solaris, 1996

This is a picture I took of the Stella Solaris during our Mayan Equinox cruise back in 1996 or was it 1997... In the era of modern superliner cruise ships, this boat was a wonderful change of pace. Whilst searching the web for pictures that other folk have taken of this fine boat, I noticed that there have been updates to the interior decor.

Sadly, today I discovered that the Stella Solaris no longer exists. Due to financial problems of the owner, the ship has been broken apart and is now but a memory. What a shame!!

The lounge/salon area was a nice place to relax, talk to fellow travelers, or read a good, non-political book!

The top deck was always a sunny place to dip yer toes in the pool, or, in my case, eat!

The nice thing about a cruise is that you have a great view of the ocean in every direction!

OK, this isn't really traveling in an RV, but this ship was a marvelous old tub!
