I was in Leith with the "Calypso" in 1976.

Hi Davus
it is Leith, she is moored in the Western Habour between the Flour Mill [Chancelot Mill] and what would still have been Henry Robbs shipbuiding yard. [Now the site of our Ocean Terminal Shopping Centre] The current cruise liner berth is just forward of Calypso's bow

This ship was originally Southern Cross, built 1955 by Harland and Wolff for the Shaw Savill Line. She carried the name Calypso from c. 1973 - 1980, often chartered by Thomson Holidays. The B on her bow puzzles me, though. Thereafter she went to Caribbean cruising as Azure Seas, and latterly I travelled on her when she was Premier Cruise Line's OceanBreeze. She ended her days under that name for Imperial Majesty Cruises, but was scrapped in 2004.
