Typical inter-war souvenir item for the obscure RMS Raunine .. A delightful little passenger/ Freight combo liner.
The silver could us a little polish but the vase is in really nice shape. Love the house flag enamel crest on the front.
Unusual item to find in North America.
Great ashtray … these could have been swiped by the thousands from the Volendam/ Veendam/ Statendam or others all throughout the 70’s and 80’s.
Sitmar sailor doll .. ever steamship line sold a version of these. I swear the facial expressions change every time I look at them. Little fabric face and velvety sailor suit .. in great condition.
3 Great Little pin dishes for this early modern cruise line. Great gold logo!
Great article by Gordon Turner on the lovely Norway which had been in Caribbean service for about 17 years by this point. Also a great story of the Fairstar by Stephen Moore as well as a great little piece on the Cairo by Peter Newall. Packed with other ship info too! Like New condition
Lovely cruise offering for the 3 ships … the Megantic, New York and St Paul. the New York and St Paul were certainly OLD by this time … but they still were put to work on “West Indies” cruises. Lots of good info on these 3 ships. Lovely green cover graphics. In good condition and printed on heavier newsprint.
Really nice color blotter for the NYK/ Japan Mail Line. Lovely profile of a twin funnel liner passing from the deck of another NYK liner. Some ink writing on the reverse side. Kind of rare to find in the USA
Evolved from Chandris Cruises … Celebrity Cruises has been successful. Maybe these were on my favorite Celebrity ship the Meridian, which once was the lovely Italian Mariconi (though extensively rebuilt). Great for your evening scotch!
Interesting and curious medallion item from the Mighty Norway. I suspect this was a decorative item that would have been used in conjunction with onboard signage. these is glue on the back side where this was once attached to some structure on board. I wonder where this was exactly mounted on the ship!
Little souvenir paperweight from a RCL ship. This is heavy and perfect to hold down your incomming cruise mail!
Great Italian Broggi mustard pot … directly from the onboard service of a Sitmar ship. I expect this is from one of the 70’s or 80’s ships like the Fairsky or Fairsea .. a little mystery. Includes the glass insert … which has a star of Bethlehem design stamped into it’s bottom. Can use some polishing to the silver and wood.
Awesome pin tray for the lovely Mardi Gras! Once the Empress of Canada, she helped put Carnival on the map … and they have become the biggest in the business. Beautifully dome in Black glass and white outline. Excellent condition.
Wonderful little pin dish from the onboard gift shop. This dish is in excellent condition … certainly betther than the ship itself which burned and sank while on a cruise off Alaska.
Somebody was onboard and removed this wonderful items …a cabin number plaque from Suite 0 1039. Who ever it was … they really just ripped this right off the bulkhead … there is still some of the wall board and glue attached to the back side. It is made of a Corian like resin …very durable. The suite was located on the International deck pretty far forward … very close to the ice cream parlor and children’s playroom. Very unique item!
Interesting deckplan for a interesting ship. She didn’t carry many passengers; she only had 181 berths.
Nice little deckplan fold out for the Pacific princess … covers schedule rates deckplans and has some pictures to boot. A second insert covers the 1975 cruises for all the ships (Island, Sun and Pacific Princess for the 1975 season) Excellent coverage of the The Lovely love boats
Lovely inaugural book for the last Veendam … 4th in HAL’s history. The book covers the building, interiors, artwork and lots of info on the ship. the book is in excellent shape and full of photos and info!
Lovely postcard view of the liner docks… looks like the QE is being docked while the Indy, United States, America, Olympia Mauretania, Sylvania and the mighty USS intrepid occupy the docks. Full color view in excellent unused shape.
Large deckplan printed for the Vistafjord when she was sailing for Cunard. Not soon after she would be renamed Caronia: Printed in Blue and silver the plan is in excellent condition, dated 4/89.
Lovely menu for the dinner hosted onboard for members of the SSHSA on May 6th 1995. Though there were only 2 choices … I bet they were delicious! excellent condition. I bet Freank Braynard was there!
Cruise News and inserts for the cruise that was not to be … the ships was to leave Miami about 415 that afternoon … but about 630 that morning the ship was rocked by a massive boiler explosion that killed 8 crew members and would ultimately end the ships service life. The inserts include a welcome aboard sheet and cover the varied shore excursions offered. good condition … probably removed from the ship in Miami before she was towed to Germany for repairs that never took place.
Room folder-packet that would have been prepared for the Norway’s cruise that was to depart Miami on May 25th 2003… but that didn’t happen. Just after 630 that morning the ship was rocked by a boiler explosion that claimed the lives of 8 crewmen. She would never sail under her own power again. The folder has some scuffs and bumps to the outside and contains typical necessary items like stationery, a postcard, cruise news paper (dated May 25th), deck plans, SS Norway history pamphlet and telephone guide. The folder was probably quickly removed from the ship as a souvenir before she was towed to Bremerhaven. Interesting item for the last day of the ships service!
Complete deck in excellent condition!
Excellent unopened and sealed in a plastic w/ a protective clear case. Pristine condition.
A nice glass ashtray with the Sitmar logo .. going all glass from china was a a cost cutting trick for all of these sorts of items. I really liked the “V” ships
