I did three european / uk coasts on these , around 1975 between deep seas on the bigger City boats , Salerno which became City of Athens , and City of Valletta , I heard some did a stint to montreal / hudson bay in summer time with ships staff working the cargo discharge .
One I joined in Glasgow , the catering staff knew they were all finished when they docked, due to trouble during the Meddi trip , so apart from all cutlery and plates going over the wall , the galley was sabotaged and the leckie gear got the heavy end .
good crowds and ships to sail on all the same ,
