Proof of details
- I sailed on the Alexandr Pushkin when I was 12 years old. The CTC Cruise went from Sydney to Port Vila, Vanuatu, to Noumea and Ille de Pines in New Caledonia. Anecdotal for sure, but this was in 1988 and the article currently states the ship was leased to CTC from 1985-19??, so it's at least a step closer to fixing that ugliness. 188.8.131.52 (talk) 01:07, 24 April 2014 (UTC)
External links were added but removed by administrator for being commericial.
The link added was a ship tracking and information site that I found and would imagine that wiki users would appreciate. Additionally most other cruise ship pages include tracking links to commercial pages so I don't see why this one is any different.
The link added doesn't appear to be particularly commercial and I can find no evidence of selling on the site.
The main page lists propulsion as 7RND76 engines but the link to the classification society states 7RD76. (Both designs are Sulzer - Winterthur, Switzerland). I suspect 7RD76 to be correct due to a)date of construction and b)in a TV documentary the chief engineer refers to an overhaul of the rotary cylinder valve, a feature of the RD exhaust system but not RND which was a later design.

Another source for RD: http://english.metalock.de/Default.aspx?page=1795 Class and an engine repair specialist are more trustworthy than the rest of the sources on the net who are all perpetuating an old mistake. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk) 11:15, 5 August 2015 (UTC)
