Astoria is (as of January 2016) the world's oldest active oceangoing passenger ship.

In her former guise as Azores, she is another steady visitor to the island with a handful of calls each year.

Astoria is operated as a cruise ship by Cruise & Maritime Voyages. During her almost seven decades of service she has passed through several owners and sailed under the names Völkerfreundschaft, Volker, Fridtjof Nansen, Italia I, Italia Prima, Valtur Prima, Caribe, Athena, and Azores before beginning service as Astoria in March 2016.
