Departure from Piraeus . 9th April 2012

Some infos about the ship:

MV Zenith is a cruise ship owned by the Spain-based shipping company Pullmantur Cruises. She was built in 1992 by Meyer Werft, Papenburg, Germany for Celebrity Cruises.
The Zenith was built as a sister ship to Celebrity Cruises' first newbuild MV Horizon. The Zenith was delivered in February 1992 and set under Liberian flag. She was used for cruises from Florida to the Caribbean and Bermuda islands. In 2002 she was reflagged in the Bahamas. In 2007 she was transferred to Pullmantur Cruises and used for cruises around the Mediterranean.
A 7-Night Cruise from 11 to 18 March 1995 aboard the Zenith is the subject of David Foster Wallace's 1995 essay "A Supposedly Fun Thing I'll Never Do Again" (collected in a collection of the same name and originally published in Harper's as "Shipping Out")Wallace refers to the Zenith as the Nadir throughout (although he insists "the rechristening's nothing particular against the ship itself").
It was damaged at the stern on 8 August 2009 when a fire broke out. It was at that moment moored at Frihamnen in Stockholm.
