HRS 1398 Barrow-in-Furness, ship, Princess Selandia 2011

“Princess Selandia is a former Danish ferry which had a long career on the Great Belt and the Baltic Sea, after which she became a restaurant and nightclub ship, currently moored in Barrow-in-Furness, England.
Built for the Danish State Railroad, Dansk Statsbaner (DSB), she began service as Dronning Ingrid on the Korsør - Nyborg route in April 1951. Several changes of Danish inter-island and Danish-Germany routes ensued. She had to give up her Royal title in August 1979 and took the name Sjælland or Selandia in 1979. Portraits of the Danish Royal Family remained in the state cabin on board. For a time she plied between Malmö, Sweden and Copenhagen.
In 1985 she was rentet out to Danish Radio and TV as a studio and used as the setting for Danish TV show "Kajplads 114" ("Berth 114").
In 1988 she became a museum and restaurant ship and was sold to English interests in April 2002, being moved to Tilbury, England and renamed Selandia. Following purchase by Rick Lucas in June 2004, she was sailed from Tilbury to Barrow-in-Furness for a £2 million, nine-month refurbishment. The whole freight deck, which once carried trains to and from Sweden, was converted to “The Blue Lagoon” - a 2500-capacity nightclub.[5] Operating from Town Quay, Buccleuch Dock, Barrow-in-Furness until the 16th August 2010. Princess Selandia also had an a la carte restaurant, casino and beer garden.”
