Postcards of Discovery

Voyages of Discovery's first exclusive ship is the Discovery, previously Princess Cruises' Island Princess.
 
Island Princess was one of two sisters completed in 1971 for Flagship Cruises as Sea Venture and Island Venture. Flagship Cruises was a Norwegian company set up by established lines Lorentzen, Fearnley & Eger etc. They were sold to P&O, for their recently acquired Princess subsidiary, in 1974. Flagship Cruises then bought the Kungsholm, which was also, in turn, sold to P&O. Island Venture was renamed Island Princess in the Princess fleet, and served with them from 1974-2000. She was then sold to Korean interests as the Hyundai Pungak. In 2003 she was acquired by UK-based Voyages of Discovery, who renamed her Discovery.
