She was transferred to the cruise line Island Cruises in 2006 to be operated out of Palma/Majorca to various destinations throughout the Mediterranean under the name Island Star. This ship was again transferred in 2008 to Pullmatur Cruises to be operated under the name Pacific Dream on Mediterranean & Canary Island cruises out of Malaga and Lisbon.
