The MV Astoria (Stockholm), which is being withdrawn from the Cruise & Maritime Voyages fleet this year should be preserved as a hotel and museum ship rather than scrapped and restored to her 1956 appearance. The ship is significant because it collided with and led to the sinking of the Andrea Doria, is the second oldest passenger ship in active service, the only SAL ship built in Sweden, and the last surviving former ship in the Swedish American Line fleet. Possible locations for preserving the ship include Gothenburg, Stockholm, and Nantucket.
