Premier Cruises postcard of SS The Big Red Boat II

Authors private collection


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
