Ah , but those domed funnels ! B/U Alang 2004 as Salona .
Wouldn't it be nice to see some of these old names make a comeback - maybe even with a green paint job !! However , as a brand of Carnival Corp , Cunard seems to mean "Queen something or other " with shopping mall deco interiors - guess anything else would be competing with their other brands .(Whaaa)

A fine Picture of Franconia arriving at Southampton taken from Hythe Pier, she has her portside shell doors open and will later go to the Ocean Dock and dock portside at berth 46 which was her usual berth at the time.
