    Default Southern Cross

    revolutionary at the time of her launch and the blue print of most if not all passenger ships and cruise liners of to day - her successor not quite so lucky - i often wondered what she would look like with a different funnel and bridge placement - and come up with this half hearted attempt - apologies to all !

    Very popular here in Oz and lived a varied life.
    But was something of a new inovation in passenger liners with her design.
    Northern Star followed, but in the end Alang got them both, Sad really
    Happy daze John in Oz.

    Hi Bryan
    My dream ship, I met my lovely wife on the Southern Cross; on her second voyage, we were both emigrating to NZ in 57, a lovely ship, though it was the first time I was ever in a cabin for four, but what the Hell! I only paid 10pounds for my passage.

    Did the Southern Cross have a service life span of over 50 years admittedly with several name changes and owners. Her sister ship Northern Star was scrapped after only 15 years ?
