Peter, I sailed on three of the next set of Cunard Medi boats namelly the Pavia,Phrygia & Lycia in the sixties. There was another the Brescia which I didnt sail on. The Meddi run was coming to its end and I only did the one Meddi run on Lycia. Pavia was on a ZIM Line charter to the Far East Japan etc from Eilat in Israel. Phyrgia was even more different as one of the first Cunarders to go up the St Lawrence Seaway as far as Chicago & Milwaukee amongst other ports.
Like you like the Meddi run specially Naples & Salerno. Great variety in those days and time to get ashore.
