Although her red hull looking rather faded, internally she was in excellent condition

 

With the Bridge looking so spotless and well maintained it looked like she was ready to sail

 

Looking toward the Bridge

 

Aft decks and pool

 

Promenade deck looked like it was awaiting passengers to board, but they never came

 

Looking at her internal photographs whilst she was in Freeport it would

make you cry knowing that her next stop was a toxic laden beach in India

 

One of her excellent cabins

 

Now named SS Big Red, she is seen bunkering in the Azores on April 15

 PLEASE NOTE: Regarding my EMAIL, as I have now officially retired I am very sorry, but I am unable to answer any further emails regarding any of the ships online.” For this reason, I have removed my email links from my site, and although there may still be some on certain pages, they will be removed when my health permits, but please do not expect an answer, as I am no longer able!

Thank you for your consideration.

Photographs on ssmaritime and associate pages are by the author or from the author’s private collection. In addition there are some images that have been provided by Shipping Companies and private photographers or collectors. Credit is given to all contributors. However, there are some photographs provided to me without details regarding the photographer/owner concerned. I hereby invite if owners of these images would be so kind to make them-selves known to me , in order that due credit may be given. I know what it is like, I have seen a multitude of my own photographs on other sites, yet these individuals either refuse to provide credit or remove them when asked, knowing full well that there is no legal comeback when it comes to the net. However, let us show these charlatans up and do the right thing at all times and give credit where credit is due!

This notice covers all pages, although, and I have done my best to ensure that all photographs are duly credited and that this notice is displaced on each page, that is, when a page is updated!
