Costa Marketing produced some of the finest brochures in the later 70’s and 80s … and this one for the Daphne sure is stunning. There are 16 pages of color interior photos as well as color coded deck plans. A beautiful cruise ship, she started life basically as a freighter for the Port Line. The text and information is written in 3 different languages: Italian, German and English: From 1979 when she joined the Costa fleet Excellent condition.
Probably the ultimate souvenir you could have from your voyage onboard would be one of these high quality and detailed models. These were probably also used at local travel agencies.
Excellent condition! $125
Great official photo of the lovely Europa. Nice Hapag Lloyd sticker on the back. Good shape!
One used and one unused postcard showing the Angelina. The used card is dated 1976 …a few years later she would be a burned out hulk. The unused card shows her anchored at Nassau.
Two unused Postcards for the long lived ship! Once the flagship for APL … she was sold to Chandris and became the Atlantis. After a year or 2 she was sold to eastern and sailed the Caribbean for years before going to other owners.
Great Life preserver motif brass colored key ring. I’m sure this was purchased onboard in the gift shop.
The Horizon slows passes the Statue of liberty while a Moran tug is positioned off the Starboard bow … in the back ground is a fire boat spraying red white and blue water in celebration. Great photo!
A Phone Plaque that was removed form the NCL Norway before she was towed to Germany and finally Alang for dismantling. This one comes from the B deck … and I am sure France/ Norway fans can decipher the exact location. Made from very heavy plastic.
Lovely tumbler like glass for the SOA … one of Royal Caribbean’s lovely white cruisers from the 1980’s. Colorful like new condition.
Super nice key to cabin A153 for the fair princess… EX Cunard Carinthia et al. She had a very long life for several different companies… finally went for scrap in about 2004. Encased in heavy plastic and in Excellent condition
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!
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!
