HISTORY -- SS Southern Cross was an ocean liner built in 1955 by Harland & Wolff, Belfast, Northern Ireland for the United Kingdom-based Shaw, Savill & Albion Line for Europe—Australia service. In 1975 she was rebuilt as a cruise ship and subsequently sailed under the names Calypso,Azure Seas and OceanBreeze until 2004 when she was sold for scrap to Ahmed Muztaba Steel Industries, Chittagong, Bangladesh.  The SS Southern Cross was the first passenger ship of over 20,000 gross register tons to be built that had the engine room (and as a result of that, the funnel) located near the stern, rather than amidships. She started a trend of aft-engined ships, and today most passenger ships are built this way.

HISTORY-- Shaw, Savill & Albion Line (later shortened to Shaw Savill Line) was comprised of three constituent companies:-

1: Shaw, Savill & Co, London formed in 1858
2: Albion Line, Glasgow in 1856
3: John Leslie & Partners, Aberdeen.

The combined Shaw, Savill & Albion Line was created in 1882, but Shaw, Savill & Co retained five sailing ships, and John Leslie & Partners ran their ships with this fleet. Shaw, Savill & Albion Line also ran a joint service to New Zealand with White Star Line from 1884 to 1933, when the collapse of the White Star Line enabled the service to be taken over completely by Shaw Savill. Shaw Savill continued to use White Star-style names with the suffix "-ic". In 1928, the Commonwealth Line taken over and renamed Aberdeen & Commonwealth Line, followed by the takeover of the Aberdeen Line in 1933. Also in 1933, control of Shaw Savill was acquired by Furness, Withy & Co.
