The handsome Greek cruise ship JASON arriving Lisbon on 7 August 1993 on a cruise around Europe chartered by German operator Phoenix Reisen who already operated the MAXIM GORKIY since 1988. JASON was built in Italy as the third of three sisters delivered in 1965-66 to the Hellenic Board of Tourism (Greek Government) and built alongside EUGENIO C in Monfalcone.
Jason was delivered on 22 February 1966 as the passenger ro-ro ferry EROS and sold the same year to Epirotiki Lines who renamed her JASON and converted the ship for cruising. She had a long career under the Epirotiki houseflag cruising in the Greek Isles and a bit around most of the world, from the North Cape to the Caribbean.
