Chusan Itinerary

Graham Harris, 1st Class Waiter from October 1968 to November 1969, has kindly provided the following information;

I may help fill in a 6 month gap from October 1968 to March 1969, albeit with not all ports included, the memory fades!

Following a 2 week Med cruise on joing the Chusan we then did a 6 month world cruise.....

October/November 1968

Southampton
Lisbon
Dakar
Cape Town
Durban
Mombasa
Bombay (Loaded cars and drivers for the London-Sydney car rally)
Colombo
Fremantle (Cars unloaded)
Adelaide
Melbourne
Sydney

Then based in Sydney for about 5 or 6 cruises out of Sydney. Cruises included a circumnavigation of Australia including a stop at Albany. Other cruises included stops at Suva, Pago Pago, Christchurch (New Zealand), crossing the international date line etc. The rerun to the UK included Penang, Singapore and South Africa etc.



Re: Chusan Itinerary

I joined Chusan in Southampton when she returned from that world voyage.

Where are you from: Ipswich originally, now Chandlers Ford, Hampshire.
