This is Shaw Savills NORTHERN STAR at Lisbon in October 1973 on cruise from the UK. I was 3/0 on her for a nearly a year.

What was it like to sail on Northern Star for cruises? Where SSA still spending money on her upkeep? I was lucky enough to sail on Southern Cross from 68 to 70 as J/3/0 but we were still doing the round the world "line" voyages that the ship had been doing none stop since 1956! A great 21st Birthday Present to get my appointment to that grand old lady!

In 73/74 everything seemed to be working well- then after I left, the breakdowns started which resulted in her very early demise. Only a 13 year life span! It was in my opinion the best way to go to sea. 6 months cruising from Southampton May to December around Med then a line voyage Down Under and cruising from Sydney around South Pacific for 6 months. Memories indeed.
