MS Express Samina (Greek: Εξπρές Σαμίνα) was a RORO passenger ferry built as MS Corse in 1966 at Chantiers de l’Atlantique, St Nazaire, France for Compagnie Generale Transatlantique along with her sister ship MS Comte De Nice. In 1969 she was transferred to Compagnie Generale Transmediterraneenne. After six years service, the company changed its name again, to SNCM to which she was transferred. In 1982 she sailed from France for the last time as she was sold to a Greek company, Stability Maritime, to operate their Italy-Greece-Israel route under her new name MS Golden Vergina.
The boat sunk in September 2000 after hit the reef of Portes islets at 18 knots.
