Why were efforts to preserve the Eugenio C as a hotel and museum ship in Genoa back in the early to mid 2000's unsuccessful and does anyone know what the proposal involved.

From what I can find online, there was never a really serious effort to save this elegant ship. She simply became old and obsolete and nobody wanted to buy a steamship with a history of mechanical trouble. A great deal of money was wasted on her towards the end. She was scrapped in India, as is common.

There's a great deal about her here. HISTORY - EUGENIO C. a masterpiece of Italian design and engineering

It's an interesting site, with plenty about other ships.
