The saga of the Lyubov Orlova finally came to an end Wednesday afternoon as the derelict cruise ship was towed from St. John's harbour by a tugboat.
The ship had been moored so long that the mooring ropes had to be cut to release it from the dock.
The process took about an hour. Two tugboats helped to manoeuvre the ship out into the harbour and turn it towards the Narrows. The Orlova will be reportedly broken down for scrap metal.
