Vistafjord - Caronia
Page 2 - Photographs in Cunard Service
This page is devoted to photographs of the Cunard liner Caronia, ex-Vistafjord. Postcards of Vistafjord/Caronia in both Norwegian America and Cunard Line service are available on this link.
Vistafjord was completed in April 1973 by Swan Hunter (Wallsend, River Tyne). Vistafjord was 24292grt and carried 830 passengers on Atlantic crossings, 550 when cruising. She was powered by two 9cyl Sulzer diesels totalling 24000shp. In 1980, she and Sagafjord passed to Norwegian American Cruises (NAC), 90% owned by NAL. In 1983, Trafalgar House acquired NAC, and the ships joined the Cunard fleet, Vistafjord retaining her name. In 1999, Cunard renamed the Vistafjord as Caronia. By this time she carried 736 passengers and tonnage had increased to 24492 following additional cabins on the upper deck. In May 2003, Caronia was reported sold to Saga Cruises, to rejoin her former fleet-mate Saga Rose as Saga Star from 2005.

Caronia at Las Palmas de Gran Canaria
29th December 2001
These pictures of Caronia departing Gran Canaria, were taken early in the morning as Aurora was arriving.
It seemed an unusual idea to overnight in a port and then leave at 8am.
