Some varied historic info...
SS Galileo Galilei was an ocean liner built in 1963 by Cantieri Riuniti dell' Adriatico, Monfalcone, Italy for Lloyd Triestino's Italy—Australia service. In 1979 she was converted to a cruise ship, and subsequently sailed under the names Galileo and Meridian. She sank in the Strait of Malacca in 1999 as the Sun Vista.

On March 23, 1963, the ship entered into service for Lloyd Triestino, doing Mediterrean cruises before departing on its official maiden voyage from Genoa, Italy to Sidney, Australia on April 22, 1963. She was originally named the Galileo Galilei. In 1983, the vessel was sold to the Chandris Group. The ship was rebuilt and her name was shortened to Galileo. In 1984 the Galileo began cruising the Caribbean under Chandris' Fantasy Cruises brand. In 1990, the Galileo had a multi-million dollar refit where most of her interiors were rebuilt after which she was sold to Celebrity Cruises and became the SS Meridian cruising on the Caribbean to New York / Boston & Bermuda.
