Be assured that my sites have never been associated with any cruise or shipping companies or travel/cruise agencies or any other organisations! The author commenced working in the Passenger Shipping Industry back in 1960 but is now very much retired and I hope that the well over 625 articles on classic liners and cruise ships that I have written will continue to inform and also bring much joy to ship enthusiasts for many more years to come!


Welcome to our new fully updated and expended SS Canberra pages.

The first two all new pages now contain a comprehensive history of this greatly loved British Liner and Cruise Ship, these two pages are supported by countless photographs and exciting illustrations as well as the very best Deck Plans from 1961, 1973 and 1996, featuring First and Tourist Class Plans, as well as the One Class version right up to her plans of her final years of cruising! Just click the Canberra Bow IMAGE above and the new SS Canberra multi page site will open at Page One, Go and Enjoy!

Reuben Goossens,

PS: Yes, there may be some errors, but remember, that due to my eyesight being poor, and my bad health I am supposed to be retired, but I have been working on this project for over a two years. Thus, if there are errors, well sorry, you can always tell me and I can fix them, if am I still able! RG.
