The Sitmar Ships

Part Four

SS Fairsky Deck Plan


The Fairsky always looked just wonderful, considering she was built as a C-3 Class freighter and then a wartime Escort Aircraft carrier

There are two Deck Plans presented on this page, the first is dated 1958 and thus it is the Fairsky as built. The second Plan is based from the 1970s and although it is very similar but now she had become mostly a cruise ship and by 1974, she became a popular full time cruise ship based in Sydney. You will not that the most notable change was the change to the starboard side of Dining Room C that had became the ships cinema. In addition she had been greatly refreshed and looked more like a cruise ship and she was better that successful and the reason that the Fairstar would take over an continue the great Sitmar name in Australia!


1958 Deck Plan

Please Note: If you wish to view the full size the two Deck Plans, all you have to do is click on the relevant image of the plan and a new page will open with the large image of that plan. However when it is fully loaded it may reduce, but just click on the image and it will return to the full size. Use your pointer to move around the plan to view all areas!

Above is the very first edition of the plan, and below it is the one issued close to the 1970’s. Itrust these plans will hel you find your room thus assit in reliving a few memories of your days spent on the Sitmar liner, or cruise ship the Fairsky!

A superb stern view of the TSS Fairsky in the 1970s at the then wonderful Overseas Passenger Terminal, which is sadly no more

Today the Cruise terminal has been moved to the other side of the city and the terminal is shocking and you have to pat a bus fare to get to town!

I was on a cruise on the Fairsky and berthed here at the OPT and just walked into town!
