Chandris Line, Wet Chips
Type: Cruise Ship
Status: Closed
Open: 05/19/1972, Close: 1974

In October 1971, Bremen was sold to Greek shipping company Chandris Cruises for 40 millions DM after 175 Atlantic crossings and 117 cruises for NDL. The sale was completed in January, 1972. After another refit, which changed her tonnage to 23,801 tons, the TSS Regina became the flagship of Chandris Cruises and inaugurated her Mediterranean service, calling at Limassol for the first time on May 19 and taking passengers from Cyprus to Beirut, Haifa, Heraklion, Piraeus, Katakolon, Corfu, Dubrovnik and Venice. Regina continued calling at Limassol regularly every two weeks and her cruises became extremely popular. She cruised the world until 1974, when she was laid up in Piraeus because of rising fuel costs and the loss of emigration charters to Australia.
