16 March 1965 - 5 April 2015
Thursday, 2 April 2015
On 29 September 2014, the Liburnija began her last journey of the season from Dubrovnik to Rijeka. As it turns out, it was to be her last passenger journey.
Jadrolinija, the ship's owner, has announced that it has withdrawn the coastal service from Rijeka to Dubrovnik. The Liburnija has been sold and on Thursday, 2 April 2015, with three 'thunderous blasts' of her siren as a farewell, she began her final voyage from her winter berth in Mali Lošinj to the breaking beaches at Aliaga in Turkey.
