Much preferred the old Venus even though she'd been sunk at least once.
I was always disappointed when we got the tickets and we were sailing on the Leda.
Leda was a very nice ship and very fast but not as big as Venus. At least from a child's point of view.
I was on the Leda when we crossed in something like 17.5 hours from Stavanger to Newcastle.
We used to cross the North Sea every two years on one or the other when I was young.
