In February 1975 I started taking photographs to passengers ships in Lisbon and one of the first brand-new ships I was able to register in film was the BYELORUSSIYA. Thirty one years later she is still around and looking smart, as can be observed on the photos taken at Lisbon on 10 September 2006.
When introduced in early 1975 as the BYELORUSSIYA, the DELPHIN was the first of another series of Soviet passenger ships named after republics of the USSR. In the end five sister were built in Finland and they are all still in service.
