Apex Tur: Back in service in Turkey

A sister of Ocean Endeavour, Ocean Life, has also returned to service this year, operating for Turkey’s Apex Tur on a series of three- and four-night cruises from Kusadasi, Turkey to the Greek Islands. This ship was built as Lev Tolstoy for the Black Sea Shipping Company, and later became Palmira. Between 2001 and 2006 she was Mano Maritime’s The Jasmine and in 2008 became EasyCruise’s second ocean cruise ship, EasyCruise Life.

That venture was short-lived, and the company and the ship were sold to Greek ferry operator Hellenic Seaways, who did not use the ship. She was chartered in 2010 to Blue Ocean Cruises as Ocean Life, but, after another failure, returned to Piraeus for lay-up (and repairs to a cracked hull). Now she is back in service in the Greek Islands.
