I sailed on the TSS Olympia, Greek Line, probably 1968 out of New York when I was a kid maybe 9 years old. I remember it very well. I loved it. I have old menu's, deck plans, the daily newsletter with all the activities listed.

I bought a great book: Olympia The Life and Times of a Greek Goddess (c) 2010 by David W. Pressler, Jr. ISBN 978-0-578-01161-5, Library of Congress No. 2010920870 The book has a lot of color pictures, deck plans, etc. It was a great history of the ship.
