The Southern Cross in her heyday above and below at her final resting place in Chittagong, Bangladesh where she ended her fifty years of service as the Ocean Breeze in a ship-breaking graveyard. Built in the same shipyard as the Titanic in 1954 till her sad end in 2004, but she had a far more fortuitous career transporting immigrants across the British Empire as well as pleasure seekers. She was the first passenger liner to be launched by a reigning monarch. Not a big ship by today's standards but as a boy to me she was huge - I thought she was magnificent! It was on board this ship in 1968 that my family and I left our home in Trinidad and headed for a new life in New Zealand stopping in Curacao, Panama canal, Tahiti, and Fiji along the way.
