I liked to spend a lot of time in the library onboard. I still have some black and white photos from onboard at least one or two cruises. I also have a post card I picked up on one of the ships. I see I dated it September 1961.

We always sailed into Liverpool which was great as we were always going to Manchester where my mom's family live.
That's great to hear. I'm sure going across the pond was always a great experience. I would love to cruise or even fly out to the UK and Europe. It's just not in the financial cards for now. One day though. I'm happy to hear such great memories like that. It's also nice to know you have photographs from back then. Cruising back then was not as common as it is now. It was a MAJOR luxury for most people I know, and I don't go back before the late 80's or so in cruising life.
