Whilst notionally still owned by the company who bought her (unless she was in fact insured
and they have been paid out for a total loss which seems unlikely) she almost certainly has a
negative value as the cost of removing asbestos and other pollutants will exceed her scrap
value outside of somewhere like the Domrep. The latest reports that a beacon has been activated
suggests she may have sunk.

Paul, I have been wondering the same thing. I guess it come down to the legal definition of "abandoned". Can anyone shed light on this? Grin

I think I recall reading somewhere the owner saying that she was only insured "whilst under tow".

From the St. Johns Telegram News Paper in St.Johns Newfoundland
Orlova's emergency beacon activated
Published on February 23, 2013

An emergency beacon registered to the MV Lyubov Orlova has gone off, according to an official with the Joint Rescue Coordination Centre in Halifax.
Capt. Wayne Jarvis says the beacon first started off going off this morning at 12:49 a.m. Emergency beacons can be activated manually or automatically by either being knocked or hitting the water. The beacon is registered to the MV Lyubov Orlova but whether that means it’s on the ship itself or was on a lifeboat that was on the vessel is uncertain. A life raft with the beacon could have gone overboard causing the beacons to activate, says Jarvis.
 “It could have banged itself into operation. On the other hand maybe the vessel sank. Everything is speculation at this point,” says Capt. Jarvis. “We don’t know what caused it. The beacon just started going off. We’re just keeping an eye on the position for reports at sea just to make sure nobody runs into it but otherwise nothing is beng pursued on it.”
The location of the dead cruise ship has been a mystery since it drifted into international waters earlier this month. Canadian officials haven’t had a positive location on the ship since February 4. The Irish coast guard has been working with a number of satellite and geospatial companies to try and locate the ship out of fear it might be drifting towards their shores. The Irish coast guard thought perhaps they had found the vessel and that it was heading more toward Iceland but whether what they found was the Orlova is now bing called into question.
On Friday, a document published by the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency, an agency of the US Department of Defense, said they had located the Orlova about 2,400 km off the west coast of Ireland. They’re position put the Orlova at 49-22.70N and 044-51.34W. The beacon’s location is 51-46.00N and 035-41.00W.

It was drifting towards Ireland.
Now it isn't.
A satellite had located the ship in February but after the EPIRB signal was received, another satellite fly by showed no sign of the ship.
I think we can assume it has sunk.

FURTHER UPDATE!!!
While going through different websites regarding Lyubov Orlova I discovered some sad news.According to the Irish Coastgaurd on March 1st MV Lyubov Orlova's emergency beacon was activated not long bofore 1 o clock that morning 700 miles south-west of Kerry (still International waters).She can no longer be found.It is believed she has sunk.A Twitter account affixed to Lyubov Orlova says "Lots of new lobster friends here, is dark and nice place for long sleep. Goodnight leetle friends, Orlova out."If this is so R.I.P Lyubov Orlov. Will someone attempt to discover her? No one knows.
Hope this is helpful,sorry to dissappoint

Unbelievable saga! Government of Canada tows vessel considered too toxic to scrap out to international waters, and sets it adrift. Thankfully there was no incident!!
