Flavia boat 1976


Recommended Posts

Took Flavia out of Miami for 1976 senior trip. It was funny because you could not be found or seen on the bottom deck. Off limits. Women were staying on that level. You would be suspended if we were caught. How crazy is that? And your luggage was checked by dogs on the pier when we got back to Miami.

I think you want to post in the "What Ever Happened To...?" folder...

The SS Flavia, as I recall, sailed for Costa during the 1970's out of Miami.  She was a small ship, around 12,000 tons, but relatively popular for her time.

 

She ended up burning and capsizing while undergoing refit for a different cruise firm in Hong Kong in the late 1980's.

 

Here's a detailed history of the ship.
