i took a cruise on the oceanic before and i know it is with pullmantur. I was wondering if you have sailed with them since premier. if so i was just wondering about it, like what had to be done to adjust to the new line. did they get a new crew and everything?
I was sad to see that Premier cruiselines Big Red Boat III (former Transvaal Castle, SA Vaal, Festivale and Island Breeze) was sent to the breakers last month. Our family sailed on her in 2000. I am glad we were able to experience one of the last mail ships afloat. I will fondly remember her lovely teak decks, the elegant Union Castle Pub with it's collection of Union Castle Line memorabillia, skeet shooting off the fantail and her excellent crew that treated this fine old ship with care and respect. I know many other share our memories this fine ship from another era. Farewell old girl!
