Product Description

Viking Cruises: A color interiors brochure for the RIVIERA PRIMA overstamped for the VIKING PRINCESS.

Chargeurs Reunis first sailed the ship as LAVOISIER on the South American run in the 1950s. In the early 1960s the newly formed Caribbean Cruise Line lavishly converted the vessel into the sleek cruise liner RIVIERA PRIMA. Caribbean Cruise Lines soon ran into financial problems and the ship was sold to a new Norwegian company, Viking Cruises. Rather than print a new brochure, the thrifty Norwegians reused the old ones by over-stamping all Caribbean Cruise Line references in gold. In fact, if you angle the cover just right you can clearly see RIVIERA PRIMA under the gold. At top is printed the ship's new name, VIKING PRINCESS.

The sixteen-page brochure showcases the mid-century modern interiors. Some of the artwork appears to be preserved from French LAVOISIER days. Gold trim cleverly hides CCL references. Even the double page portrait has gold stamping on the funnel. But they missed the stern where "RIVIERA" is clearly visible. In the wee hours of April 8, 1966, an engine room fire got out of control and quickly spread. The general alarm was given and passengers mustered at their lifeboat stations. Now comes the remarkable part of the story which runs countered to many other ship fires of the era. The crew calmly and skillfully launched all boats within 15 minutes. Except for two passengers who died of heart attacks, everyone was rescued.
