Any one around who came to New Zealand on the Captain Cook in November 1955
Barrie, welcome to this great site. If you click on Forums above and enter TSS Captain Cook in the search box, you will find a few threads on her as you scroll through.
You've no doubt found the Google info, and there are a couple of old posts you may be able to follow up, here:

All the best, (Thumb)

Hi Barrie, sailed from Glasgow 6th Oct? arrived Wellington mid/late Nov 1955 where I turned 15. Went on to Tokoroa where my dad had a house & job waiting. Our family migrated to NZ from Gourock Scotland so we were passengers. We lived about 1 mile upstream from the Cloch Lighthouse. Had a pretty rough trip through the Irish Sea & accross the Atlantic till the Carribean then ok to Wellington.
