She was a very fine liner indeed and her conversion into a cruise ship did not spoil her lines at all. My two weeks aboard her stand out as one of the most enjoyable cruise experiences I've had - and I have sailed on many ships.
Good to see you back, I had wondered where you had gone due to your lack of recent post's.
The photo recently posted of the former SANTA ROSA during her conversion in Greece showed the bow of what must be the VASCO DA GAMA. Stephen and I had questioned what ship it belonged to and now we know the answer.
Thanks, that was nice to know you were concerned for my whereabouts. I'm here and fit and well.
It had bugged me that I did not know the identity of the bows behind the former Santa Rosa and it frustrated me to discover that it was a ship that I have great affection for. I first saw her in Lisbon in 1973.
