Now approaching the iceberg limit.This is an example of where that may typically be.It is outside of this limit where the potential for incident is highest.

Will any attemps be made to retrieve her.Doubtful I'd say as it may be too risky

my guess is that if she survives the elements long enough, whichever country she gets too close to first will end up declaring her a hazard to navigation, then scuttle her for target practice.

Could anybody that happens by this ship hook on, tow it to shore and file a claim? Or has the law changed? After it is abandoned and derelict.

If she starts to drift East and only a few miles south she may land in Cork or Kerry in Ireland.Hope she does  Cheesy

Re: Robert J. Smith's post: The map attached showing where the Ship set out for Puerto Rico is wrong. It shows her leaving the coast of Labrador, not St. Johns. St. Johns is on the Island of Newfoundland down in the south east corner, not on the mainland where the starting point is posted.
I guess whoever posted the map with the arrows just doesn't know Canadian Geography!

This story is drifting as far as the Orlova. Here is a comment on the piece which was posted in the Weekend Telegram by a reader who brings the facts back to reality: Duffy - February 23, 2013 at 16:47:08 "The location of the dead cruise ship has been a mystery since it drifted into international waters earlier this month." It should read "Since Canadian Officials set it adrift in International waters".

Only a hope that she lands somewhere before she sinks

Is the ship abandoned (I know there is no one on board) but is she actually owned by anyone now, the ship breaker or her former owner/operator?
Could someone, for example, go aboard her and claim her as their own, repair her and put her back into service?
