OM's pioneering first ship, Logos, was purchased in 1970. Over a 17-year period, more than six and a half million visitors came to Logos during 408 ports of call in 108 countries.
In 1988, Logos ran aground in atrocious weather conditions in Tierra del Fuego, hitting rocks in the Beagle Channel between Argentina and Chile. Though the ship could not be saved, not a single crewmember was lost, or even injured!
Later that year, the former Antonio Lazaro became Logos II.

Originally known as Umanak, this vessel was built in 1949 at Helsingör Vaerft & Mask. in Denmark with hull number 290. She was delivered to Den Kongelige Grønlandske Handel (Royal Greenland) in July that year and sailed a regular route from Denmark to Greenland.
She was purchased on 15 October, 1970 in Copenhagen, Denmark and then towed to Rotterdam, the Netherlands where renovations were done. The vessel was registered in Singapore and renamed Logos. On 18 February 1971, she sailed to her first port of call - London, England.
