MS Oslofjord was a combined ocean liner/cruise ship built in 1949 by Netherlands Shipbuilding Company in Amsterdam, Netherlands for Norwegian America Line. As built she was 16,844 gross register tons, and could carry 620 passengers. In 1967–1968 she was chartered to Greek Line and from 1968 onwards to Costa Crociere, who renamed her MS Fulvia in 1969.[1][2] Following an explosion in the engine room, the Fulvia caught fire near the Canary Isles on 19 July 1970, and had to be evacuated. She later sunk while being towed to Tenerife.[1]
