More DetailOriginally constructed as a three-masted schooner in 1973 in Denmark, this sailing vessel traveled around the Caribbean and was later redesigned to serve as a navigation training ship. In 2006, she went through a refitting process and was given a new and more robust engine plus state-of-the-art navigational equipment. Then she was brought to the Philippines to fulfill the role of an adventure cruise ship. In 2013, the cruise ship was renamed Discovery Palawan and went through a 1.5 million USD renovation to give her a fresh and stylish look.
