Lovely little ashtray for the Greek line. Beautiful partial profile of the Olympia in the bowl of the tray… these were always easy souvenir’s for passenger hunters. Excellent condition.
The lovely “American” lady that started her life as the Kenya Castle and made most voyages from England to Africa. The Greeks bought her and gave her some updating and successfully put her into the American cruise market. This lovely heavy tissue line deckplan was printed in the USA sometime after 1960. Excellent condition … lovely rendering of the ship on the back cover.
An excellent deckplan for the Greek Lady! She was another one of Matson’s pre war lovlies that found life after WW2 and long layup. The plan is made from heavy tissue like paper and has a travel agency stamp from Minnesota. The plan is marked preliminary .. and has no date, but seems to be from about 1966 as the wording inside mentions “she will be” compliant with 1966 Solas standards. Lovely picture of the ship on the back cover.
2 great items for the QAM: the first is a leaflet for the 1974 Bermuda cruises out of Baltimore and Philadelphia. This includes info on the Happy ship herself, room rates and onboard pictures (the guy in the black socks and shorts is a looker for sure). The deckplan is a little yellowed and the prior owner added several notes on various cabin rates.
Nice no frills passenger list for a 1966 Bermuda cruise. Printed on off-white stock … it list’s the folks that would have been onboard. A cute “plain Jane” little bugger!
Nice little deckplan for the Olympia with about 25 great little onboard vibrant color pictures. The Greeks were certainly proud of this little ship … rare for them to have a newly built liner … so adept were they at recycling older ships into new roles and lives. This is printed on heavier stock and the white parts have aged and yellowed a little. One very small 1/4″ tear on a seamline.
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.
