Welcome to …

to date I have written on around 700 of the great Classic Liners, as well as many of the lesser converted C# Victory ships that became Migrant ships sailing the globe, and Passenger Cargo Ships of days now long gone. At the time of writing, thankfully there are just a few of the old girls still with us, us, considering that the ex 1965 Russian built MS Alexander Pushkin, today’s “Cruise & Maritime Cruises” MS Marco Polo is still cruising. Then there is the SS United States, which may yet be rebuilt into a cruise ship, and the ex RMS Queen Mary is a hotel in Long Beach, California USA, as well as the magnificent never aging SS Rotterdam, which is a fine hotel in her homeport Rotterdam in the Netherlands. There are of course other ships and vessels as well s those still hoping to be saved, including the wonderful QE2!

However, for an introduction to the many ships online and the most recent additions and updates, I suggest that you click the LINK below or the IMAGE below it, for it will bring you to the Introductory page, which has links to various ships as well as the man link to the ssMaritime Main Index!

Photograph above: The Dutch Royal Interocean Lines operated two fine luxurious passenger cargo liners sailing round voyages from Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane Australia via a good number of port to Hong Kong and Japan. They then returned with a similar voyage back to Australia. Many Australian’s took these voyages as a round trip and these were very popular as the service and the cuisine was exceptional! Above we see the MS Tjiluwah, which is seen in Hong Kong Harbour. She and her sister the MS Tjiwangi were lovingly known as the “Elegant White Yachts.”
