Pam thanks for the links. The Federico C as built is about my favorite Italian liner from the period, and she had some great competition! The cruising refit that built up her fwd superstructure and glazed in her Prom Deck didn't help her looks much. Catering for three classes her deck plans were incredable with all keys public rooms triplicated and clever stairways and door arrangements to ensure the classes didn't mix but could still get to where they needed to go.

Sailed her as the Sea Breeze. The 1986 redecoration evacuated most of her personality. The ship always felt cramped and below the public room decks was a rabbit warren of staircases and corridors. Her terraced aft decks; opposite of Queen Anna Maria which was one long aircraft carrier arrangement, was a nice feature since each one took on its own ambiance. Sea Breeze was a volatile roller too.
