Second ship of this type was Aleksandr Pushkin. But I'll Show it later ))
Third one was Taras Shevchenko.
this ship was build for Black sea soviet fleet and used for regular lines between Odessa, Batumi, Varna and other ports.
In 1972 she passed thuth the first great modernisation, her capacity was enlarged from 750 to 890 passengers
In 1984 Taras Shevchenko set sails to cruise routes in Black and Medditerranean seas, her interiors were modernised, and hull took white colour
After USSR collupsed, ship became the property of Ukraine. She made several cruises, but most of the time stayed in Odessa.
In 2005 ship was sold for scrapping. Before this desigion Ukraine made several attempts to sell this liner to world famous shipping companies, including russian one. Later I'll show you how this liner should looked, if it became russian.
