I joined the RMS Andes at Southampton in 1968 for her final World Cruise, primary port visits were Rio De Janeiro, Capetown, Mauritius, Singapore, Penang, after 4 days in Penang my memory was a bit of a blur. The was supposedly her final voyage and we flew her paying off Penant throughout the voyage. Now I see through previous posts she sailed on for a few more years. As an Able Seaman it was a memorable voyage. I also read an article in one of the fleet street rags which talked about this final World Cruise stating that the highlight of the voyage was the visit to Hong Kong, I can assure you we never visited Hong Kong.
