I travelled on this cruise ship in November 1973 with my then husband and my parents. I needed my ear de-waxing and went to the medical quarters. I opened the wrong door and noticed a bath containing blood and water.
I related this to Ken Swift from Northallerton, he worked for the BBC, he said the ship's flag was at halfmast. I was informed that two crewmen had had a fight in the galley and one was fatally stabbed.
He was taken to Madeira.
