Hello Guilman. Not sure if I can find details of your 1st Andes trip but the one you had to leave was as follows:Thanks for that DB, good photos from the Andes enjoyed the gallery,
A young person died in the officers pantry on G deck after playing deck cricket with a rope ball. As far as I remember he was struck on the chest and died almost immediately. We were on a short cruise from New York to Quebec and had to dock in Nova Scotia to remove the poor lad. He was I believe one of the director's son of the Royal mail line, but this was in 1958 and I was sixteen, now nearly 75. Happy and some not so happy days.Sorry a bit of a cheerful question, but I would very much like to know - does anyone remember/remember hearing about someone dying on board the Andes in June 1965?
