Orion seen berthed in Auckland 

This album has a range of images of the ships interiors and decks. However, all except three photographs are the First Class facilities. Sadly, Tourist Class photographs of her interiors are hard to come by. If you, have photographs that are suitable to be added to this page, please email these to me. By doing this, you will give a great deal of pleasure to countless thousands who visit this site. Full credit will be given.
