An era of ocean voyaging in Samoa has ended with the Samoa Shipping Corporation putting the Lady Samoa II to bed forever.

The Corporation this morning posted a photo of the Lady Samoa II on their Facebook page with the caption: “MV Lady Samoa II: Her final voyage before she sinks to the bottom of the ocean.”

The post does not say where the ferry has been sunk and who was there when it dropped to the seabed.

The ferry had served the Mulifanua and Salelologa route for many years, providing transportation services for thousands of travellers.

It had also sailed to American Samoa when needed.
