Large PC for the Norway in excellent condition from 1998 .. she only had a little service time left on the open seas before a boiler explosion sent her to Alang (via a long layup in Bremerhaven). God love her … she was the flagship and namesake for 2 nations!
Excellent counter card for the Oceanic and Atlantic … showing the Atlanic being escorted by smaller watercraft. The Atlantic was the second to the last ship built for Home lines and joined the Oceanic in 1982. There were both eventually sold to Premier to become sister “starships”. This came from the amazing Braynard collection that covered all aspects of the maritime world.
Cute little vintage vinyl ID wallet from the Fair Princess. Flash your Captain Stubing, Julie McCoy or Bartender Issac mug shot at folks .. and off you go!
I know this came from the Regent Sea (ex Gripsholm), cause a buddy of mine tucked it in his pocket when he was onboard her in Tampa. Stainless steel … certainly not the silver service that would have been onboard during the Gripsholm days. Thanks goodness folks removed items while she was laid up in Tampa … She sank on the way to the breakers.
Nice modern cruising souvenir puzzle for the RCL. This is in “never opened” condition and shows one of the glorious white-hulled cruisers. Cute little item for Royal Caribbean. Meant as a gift …has an area to be addressed and stamped .. and dropped in the mail!
Nice early framed print of the Norway done by marine artist James Flood. Certainly done before the suites were added topside … and the ship’s good “French” looks and superb lines were a bit compromised. The Norway arrived at Alang named “Blue Lady” and was cut up for scrap metal to fuel India’s growing economy. The print is in great shape .. a few nicks to the frame. *** shipping calculator may not be correct, I should quote***
Colorful folded multi-page brochure for the Britanis. This does include nice colored deckplans. This was from her 1993 Mexican Caribbean season. 5 nights, $399. She started life as a Maston liner … but after a long life with Chandris, she sailed white hulled and rusty from Tampa on her way to the scrappers.
Another fine pin dish from Royal Cruise Line. This one is still in it’s original box and wrapper! This was a gift for Ms Neta Kabney who stayed in cabin 9065. Excellent condition!
Great little souvenr dish … with a nice image of one of their ships … the Royal Odyssey. She spent many years sailing all over the globe. The dish is in great condition with no flaws.
NCL did everything in the 80’s to keep building their share of the cruise business …including having live Broadway shows. Hello Dolly! being one of the show onboard the Norway. This is a cute little souvenir program from one of those shows. In great shape!
Nice “blue delft” maiden year plate in its original box for the Ryndam. HAL is still a major traditional player in today’s cruising world ..albeit owned under the umbrella of the Carnival empire. The HAL folks still have and appreciate good interior design and artwork on their ships.
A great in the package RVL scarf. I really loved the RVL ships … they had such nice modern lines. The scarf looks like it was never opened or worn… excellent condition! Still stylish for modern cruising!
MV Victoria: A nice travel agency counter card for this trendy little post war cruiser! She started life in the 30’s as a traditional looking motor ship for Union castle … and after war was gutted and rebuilt to become a gem of Italian modern design for Incres. The card is in great condition with bright colors!
