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