This page shows Oceanic under her three owners, Home Lines, Premier Cruises and currently Pullmantur Cruises. Thereafter, we are pleased to present a series of photographs taken by Mr Michael Hipler showing her interiors as she is today, whereas Photo Album Two contains a series of photographs we have culled from an original Home Lines brochure, which I am sure will be enjoyed by all who are fascinated by this grand ocean liner!
