‘THE AMERICAN LADY’
Amerikanis was one of three former Union-Castle Line ships bought and converted by Chandris Lines. Originally launched as Kenya Castle in 1951, Amerikanis entered service for the Greek operator in the late 1960s and continued cruising until 1996 when she was finally laid-up. Being a dedicated cruise-ship from the start, Amerikanis boasted a number of popular features such as the ‘Aquamarine Bar’ and ‘Neptune Casino’.
