    These are amazing & sad photos Majaorca100. I have seen some other photos of her on the interweb, but none as good as these. I can say, I didn't know much about her before your post. Now after reading up, I find she was laid up for a long time and has long colourful history.
    What a unique looking lady, I am quite taken with her unusual design. Thanks for putting these up.

      I agree, certainly sad photos of a unique looking ship. Something about her reminds me so much of the 'Kalakala', most probably the profile of the bridge.

      Lets hope the 'Kalakala' finds a better future than the poor 'Aquarama'.

      If anyone is interested in the 'Kalakala' then you will find lots of info on the Kalakala website.

      She must have one of the most interesting histories of any ship!

        One word... WOW! Kalakala is something else. I must admit to being amazed at a 1930's design like this. Her extraordinary life span is astonishing, what an amazing vessel.
        The fact she has survived the onslaught of the so called modernized world and all it's lunacy, says she must be given a chance to go on. Brilliant site and, many thanks Steve for introducing us in all honesty, to another very unique lady!!

          Thank you for sharing those image of Aquarama... wonderfully historical and interesting. Never seen anything like that ever before... she kind of looks pre-stripped to the bare metal during her scrapping...

            was the aquarama a passinger or a freigt ship or both?
            a nice ship she was, odd,but nice.

            that funnel with her bridge lookes like a bridge of a russian sub into the sub tower.

            of the kalakala,i find her on google earth on a picture from nov.2007

              I believe she was a great lakes passenger ship, but it could be that she also carried cargo, I don't know
