The first Sun Princess was originally P&O’s Spirit of London … but was quickly transferred to the budding princess fleet when P&O bought Princess cruises in the early 1970’s. Once the popular “Loveboat” series started filming onboard the fledgling Princess fleet … bookings soared! This Irish Linen hand towel is just in absolute pristine condition … probably purchased onboard during a cruise and kept in a drawer as a precious memento. Not a common towel to find at all!
A nice “new in the box and never opened” model for the lovely Oriana. I sure wish she was still around today. After her sailing life, she was off to the Orient for multi-use as a convention center etc. After springing a few too many leaks .. she was quietly stowed to the scrappers. How sad! I bought this model for a fun winter project … but alas I have way too may other projects that need attention!
Mint Janurary1962 passenger list for the Canton. Look at all the exotic destinations for these folks .. Bombay, Aden, Singapore etc. Crisp and nice … I’m sure it sat in a drawer for 40 years +.
