The author has been in the passenger shipping industry since May 1960, but although retired and unwell, I occasionally attempt to write an article now and then, in order to bring enjoyment and pleasure to ship enthusiasts past passengers and crew.


Please Note: Photographs on this feature are from the author’s massive maritime collection or as

stated otherwise. There are some that have been provided to me by supporters but I have no details

Photo Album:

This album presents images from a brochure, which is part of the author’s private maritime collection and it reveals the Princess Patricia’s interiors, as well as her decks, etc, which had not changed since her refit into a cruise ship back in 1963. The only new addition was the installation of air-conditioning and a swimming pool which was added for what became the Princess Cruises charter in 1965.
