Where She Went
In her lifetime she visited the Falkland Islands and the Arctic Ocean. She lived a good 25 years before crashing.
How did she sink?
Nobody shot or sank her. She sunk at Roderick Bay in the Florida Islands on April 11,2000. She struck a reef or a rock causing the ship's downfall forcing passengers and crewmembers to escape the sinking ship.
All 99 passengers went unharmed by the accident, but the cruise remains untouched with it's wooden deck rotting.
Her oil tank is rusting, the rust would cause a hole making the oil escape which would result the water being polluted.
The rock it hit stabed a hole in her hull.
She had 7 decks. It had 75-80 crew members.
