The cruise ship MV Lyubov Orlova, the Russian ghost ship with rats only as passengers is adrift in the Atlantic Ocean and is slowly drifting towards the Irish coast as reported in of dated 22nd of February 2013.

It seems it had been adrift for the last two months with no crew or lights and its location could not be ascertained because its GPS was inoperative.

As per the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency, the Lyubov Orlova is at present 1300-nautical miles off the Irish coast – this information is based on satellite images.

The NGIA analyses satellite images and creates detailed maps for use by the US government.

Incidentally the cruise ship had left the shores of Canada on 23rd of January 2013 for towing to the scrapyard in the Dominican Republic but the towing cable snapped and, within one day, the ship was stranded in international waters.

It was then that the Atlantic Hawk, a supply vessel of the offshore oil industry came into the picture – but, once again the ship drifted off.

The derelict ship is now 800-Km from the coast of Europe and its owners have to own up responsibility because such an abandoned ship is a safety hazard.
