HISTORY -- The much admired Arcadia held the distinction of being the largest P&O liner to be built on the banks of the Clyde. Her design was in essence a larger and improved version of the early post war Himalaya and Chusan. The Arcadia & Iberia were the last traditionally designed vessels built by P&O and the largest passenger liners operating east of Suez. While the Arcadia enjoyed a reliable career, the Iberia was plagued with stability and mechanical problems.

HISTORY -- Windsor Castle was the largest passenger/cargo mailship operated by the Union-Castle Line on its 'Cape Mail' service to South African ports. Built in 1959, the new vessel was notable for the high standard, if conservative, design of her public rooms in a "traditional" first class and "contemporary" tourist class configuration, which by clever arrangement, afforded both classes public rooms and deckspace facing forward. The spacious passenger lounges and dining rooms were designed by eminent British architects. Windsor Castle was air-conditioned throughout the passenger and crew areas. Facilities included a fully equipped hospital, two outdoor swimming pools, a health spa and a theatre/cinema.

CANBERRA FAREWELL CRUISE COLLECTION OF MENUS AND BOOKLETS DATED SEPTEMBER 1997

ITEM PRICE REDUCED
{was £49 - now £39}

DESCRIPTION
-- Small collection of china pieces from the last ever voyage of the old vessel the SS Canberra and consists of a ship's Cup & Saucer and a Side Plate. All of the items are Royal Porcelain pieces and are all bottom marked and are all original items as the design was patented to The SS Canberra only.
[ONLY 1 AVAILABLE]

CONDITION -- Excellent

HISTORY -- P&O commissioned the Canberra to operate the combined P&O-Orient Line service between the United Kingdom and Australia. The arrival of the jet airliner had already caused a drop in demand for this service; a reduction in emigration to Australia and wars forcing the closure of the Suez Canal saw the route become unprofitable. However a refit in 1974 saw the Canberra adapted to cruising. Unusually, this transition from an early life as a purpose built ocean liner to a long and successful career in cruising, occurred without any major external alterations, and with only minimal internal and mechanical changes over the years.
