    Was it this ship?

    Orsova was chartered by Gulf Oil in the spring of 1969 to act as a floating hospitality and accommodation ship for the formal opening of the Bantry Bay Oil Terminal. Leaving Southampton she called at Cobh in Ireland to collect the many guests to be taken to the Bay for the ceremony.

    ?

    ORSOVA in 1969 and we spent 6 weeks cruising April/May before a deep sea voyage. From Memory we started in Southampton - Bermuda - Port Everglades - Panama - Acapulco - Los Angeles - San Francisco - Vancouver - Hawaii - Suva - Auckland - Sydney as the outward leg. I cannot now remember on that particular voyage if we then did Australian cruising to the islands or round Pacific. If the latter it would be Sydney - possiblye Brisbane - Hong Kong - Kobe - Yokohama - Hawaii - Vancouver - San Francisco - Los Angeles - Hawaii - Suva - Auckland - Sydney. Then I think the return voyage to the UK was with an Australian Womens Weekly Tour Group who took over the entire ship and we converted to a one class ship. That would be Sydney - Kong Kong - Kobe - Yokohama - Hawaii - Vancouver - San Francisco - Los Angeles - Acapulco - Panama - then I am not sure which ontervening ports but back to Southampton. I was on ORSOVA for most of 1968 and 1969 if you need more information.
