A question for the savvy amongst you...

Ahoy, shipmates!

My name is David. I am a writer from Australia researching old ocean liners, and am in need of some information.

I am asking the following question specifically in relation to the RMS Macedonia:

Leaving from London in 1923, how long would it take to sail to Yokohama via the Suez Canal?

If you need more information to answer this question, please ask me and I will try to find it for you.

Thanks in advance,

About 4 weeks direct at 18 knots but most ships rarely sailed direct to Japan.
