Throwback Thursday - week 35/2018


I really can't believe it, but it’s Thursday, and before nobody complains that I have forgotten my throwback again, here is my pick of the week from the box of photographic wonders. As I place my hand into the box and reach for the first photograph, this is what I found.†


The image is clearly taken back while I was serving on the SS Norway. The time-code stamped on the back of this old paper photpograh doesn’t make any sense to me at all, so no clue there. There is a clue in the photograph though, it appears as we are about to pick up the first tender - one of the "little Norway" tenderboats - at the end of a day at anchor off somewhere in the Caribbean. My mind seems to place this image to one of the several cruises we sailed to Saint Croix, as a replacement-port after a hurrican having decimated Saint Thomas - our usual port of call. I think timing of this image might be sometime during late 1995 or 1996.†


Did you ever sail on the SS Norway, did you work on the SS Norway - I would love to hear your stories too. Do you have any speical memories from the greatest ship ever built?†
