Photo Page

Photographs on this page are by & Copyright 2004 - Juan A. Figueroa (USA)

 

I have added no commentary to this page as I feel the photographs speak for themselves and they reveal the elegance and beauty of this gracious liner. As can be seen, she has well maintained teak decks, a traditional glass enclosed promenade and masses of fine timber features throughout her interiors. Before she was sold to be broken up in March 2009, I am sure you will be aware that her operators - Imperial Majesty Cruises maintained Regal Empress magnificently! The ship has now been broken up. See our Olympia Campaign page for details. Links are below.

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 (my email address may be found on www.ssmaritime.com only), 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!
