She's regained her passenger certificate and is doing passenger sailings again this summer. A great day out with bridge and engine room visits. She has the 'feel' of a deep sea ship. Well worth a go if you're able to get to Southampton.

I was on the delivery job-- Glasgow to Southampton with stop at Holyhead for bunkers. Dec.1977 I believe--it was definitely winter weather.
