There is a fine picture of the day of "Princess Danae" ex Port Melbourne in todays' newsclippings at [email protected] <cl[email protected]> almost certainly taken recently. Considering this ship, on which I was first trip apprentice in 1962, was built in 1956 she looks incredible. All power to her Portuguese owners and managers for keeping her in such a fine condition and continuing to operate this 54 year old vessel with an almost clean Port State Inspection record since 1999.

Great to note from Ships Monthly(December 2011) that both Princess Daphne (ex Port Sydney 1955) and Princess Danae (ex Port Melbourne 1955) will continue operating through 2012. Details can be found at http://www.shipsmonthly.com/index.p...artered-for-cruises&catid=51:cruise&Itemid=66 entitled "Sprightly sisters sail on". An understatement about ships that will be 56 years old. Must have been well built by Harlands?
