They were great ships to sail on. Probably the favourites in the fleet ... lovely accommodation and great trips ...they traded worldwide. I personally sailed on 5 of them and visited South Africa, Australia, Fiji, India, Singapore and best of all many many UK, Europe and Scandinavian ports.

Roger that! I sailed on 2 of them, the accommodation was top class as you can see from the size of the midships section. We had decent decks we could walk around and laze out on, unlike todays deckless steel slab blocks.
