Hi, anyone off the Orsova from 72?
Also Arcadia 73-late 74,also Canberra world cruise 75,
Would love to hear and exchange old stories
My wife, Eveline Maas, was on Orsova from 1971 to May 72.
See her photos at: Eve's Memories
I Sailed on The Orsova from 1969 until she went for scrap in 1973. I was PRS and then a barman.
I was also on The Oronsay for 1 trip and then Arcadia from 1974.
I remember your wife from The Orsova. Carol and Sue also. Carol was from Manchester.
The blonde WAP with your wife was actually Clare the D.J. She was very friendly with one of the SAP'S. Mr. Phillips, I think his name was David. I worked The bars Tourist Ballroom and Verandah Bar with Lurch.
Loved all the lovely photos.
Phil, She still looks the same! I met her on Oriana in 73 when I was 2nd leckie.
Phil the mention of Lurch brought back memories of working with him on PACIFIC PRINCESS. I believe he left the sea and was running a pub in London (World's End I think). Trying to remember his real name David ?
Lurch's real name was David Westwood.He had a pub near Colchester and then he moved to Braintree.
I lost touch after that. I think he retired back to Maldon.
Great to see the best Verandah barman is still going strong! Magic balancing the serving tray in 'rough weather' and spot on with the amount of water to serve a great scotch! Cheers Phil and thank you.
SORRY I MISSED YOUR CONNECTION. LOVELY TO HEAR FROM YOU. DO YOU REMEMBER ( BARMAN ) GINGER BAYLISS? MET UP WITH HIM A COUPLE OF YEARS AGO OVER IN CLENT WEST MIDLANDS. RUNNING A PUB.
I was 3rd Eng on Orsova 72-73 we did voyage out from Uk to Sydney then up to Vancouver ,San Fran back to Sydney then back to Soton was about 6 months ,longish trip. I remember Dougie Bayliss he was Bar Manager I think it was on the West Coast (
