Norwegian passenger ro-ro 'Venus' ('Black Prince')

Fred. Olsen & Co's passenger-ro/ro ferry "Venus" (9,499 tons gross, built 1966 by Lübecker Flender-Werke, Lübeck) approaching Bergen on 24th August 1982. She alternated between service as a cruise ship in the winter season under the name "Black Prince" and during the rest of the year as the ferry "Venus" on charter to Det Bergenske Dampskibsselkab. From 1983 she operated on cruises only and in 1986 was converted to a full cruise ship. In 2009 she was sold to Servicios Acuaticos de Venezuela C.A. (SAVECA) & renamed "Ola Esmeralda" but is reported to have ceased operating in November 2012 & up for sale.
