SS Brasil & Argentina

Deck Plan



Please note: Images on this page, except those marked otherwise, are from the author’s private collection

These plans are of these ships after having had their 1963 multi million rebuilding program, which was undertaken between March and June of that year. Two new decks were added atop of the ships and they were named Sun and the Navigation Decks. These contained new accommodations for 163 passengers as well as a new observation lounge on Sun Deck. In several of the other public areas were enlarged

 This deck plan was kindly forwarded to me by Sven Larsen

This feature on an excellent ship is continued over the next four pages. I trust that you enjoy this feature, especially if you have sailed on the SS Brasil or the SS Argentina!

“Blue Water Liners sailing to the distant shores.
I watched them come, I watched them go and I watched them die.”
