The 4,077-ton, 100-passenger cruise ship mv Corinthian was launched in 1990.

On December 27, 2009, while operating under charter by Travel Dynamics International (New York-based cruise travel operator), Clelia II ran aground off Antarctic Peninsula. The accident resulted in starboard propeller damage, lost of the starboard engine and electricity. The fleet mate Corinthian 2 (now Hebridean Sky) assisted and escorted the damaged ship back to Ushuaia (Argentina)

Clelia II was partially disabled by a rogue wave on December 8, 2010, while transiting the Drake Passage. The Navigation bridge was also damaged. The nearby Lindblad ship National Geographic Endeavour assisted the disabled vessel during the accident.
