A cruise ship formerly owned by Fred. Olsen is being broken up in a Turkish shipyard.
Boudicca, a 177m long cruise liner, was bought by the Suffolk-based cruise company in 2005 but was retired by the business in August 2020.
Boudicca, along with sister ship Black Watch, was sold to be used as accommodation vessels for shipyard workers in Turkey.
But now, it has been reported that Boudicca was beached at a scrapping yard in Aliaga, Turkey, for breaking down.
Peter Deer, managing director at Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines, said: "Boudicca was sold to a company in Turkey last year. She was a part of our fleet for 14 happy years.
"While we are sad to hear this news, we have a wealth of wonderful experiences that will live long in the memories of us, our guests and our crew."
