Originally built for Holland to Indonesia services, then transfered to around-the-world sailings in 1959; for several years her route included an intransit call at Port Everglades. Her owners boasted "among the vessels that nowadays sail the high seas, there is the Willem Ruys, well known for her gay and yet cosy atmosphere, the superb standard of her international cuisine, the courteous and efficient service .. no detail contributing to comfort and convenience has been overlooked". Sold to Lauro Line in 1964 for further service as the immigrant liner Achille Lauro between Italy and Australia, and later as a cruise ship; gained notoriety for a hijacking in 1985; lasted until 1994.
