Nice photo of this classic liner! Glad you rescured all those files and photos. Thanks for sharing them with us all. I sailed a few cruises on her as Seawind Crown out of Aruba. She was a delight and that three story staircase was a stunner!

This is the photo used as the postcard given out on board.
I have a brochure of her so will look it up and see what a scan will produce
She was a lovely ship with large open decks , lots of lino and that classic 60's modern interiors.
I particularly remember the striking statue of the Prince Henry the Navigator on the top of a staircase.
