Hi, I am a new member to this forum from Cincinnati area of Ohio.
My hubby has traveled by liner many times. Not me. His favorite was the Italia.

I have a question on an item I have from years ago. It is a small silver tray from the Andrea C. I have tried to post a picture. Any information would be appreciated. for any help

Hello The Andrea C started life as the American Ocean Virtue 1942. Torpedoed 1943 off Scilly spent the rst of the war laid up in Italy. Costa Line bought her in 1946 entered service June 1948 from Genoa to South America. She was rebuilt again in 1959 she then began to spend part of each year cruising. Andrea C was scrapped in La Spezia in 1983. I cannot shed any light on the tray. (Wave)

Greetings and Welcome Aboard! Your ANDREA C tray does not come from that ship itself -- it was part of a collection of souvenir gifts given out to repeat passengers (Club C) during the early 1990s. I have several of these, representing Costa's classic ships of the past. This would likely have come from COSTA CLASSICA or COSTA ROMANTICA.
