IRPINIA: 1929 - Large color-coded deck plan from 1959

Product Description

Siosa Line:  A large (27" by 38") tissue deck plan for the IRPINIA dated April 1959.  Four years earlier Siosa had purchased the aging liner from Transports Maritimes where she had sailed since 1929 as the CAMPANA.

This plan shows the lay-out used while the IRPINIA carried immigrants from Europe to Venezuela.  Six decks are shown in detail with color-coding for First, Cabin, and Tourist classes.  Not many were carried in First but they had plenty of deck space, spacious cabins with private bath, a swimming pool, large public rooms, and a bow-facing Dining Room on Promenade Deck.  While Cabin Class accommodations lacked private facilities, they still had plenty of deck space, public rooms, and their own pool.  

The situation in Tourist was different.  For westbound voyages the ship tended to carry Spanish and Portuguese migrants and workers to the Caribbean and Venezuela.  Eastbound, Tourist catered to West Indian workers headed for Britain.  They had to endure packed dormitories, minimal public room space, and only a wind-swept bow for fresh air. 

A ship portrait shows the raked bow added by Siosa in 1955 and the old twin funnels.  In 1962 the stacks were replaced with a modern single version.  During that same retrofit much of Cabin and Tourist was ripped out and replaced with a single class aimed at the bargain cruise market.  By 1970 the IRPINIA turned mainly to cheapie Mediterranean cruises, a role she played for a decade except for a break to masquerade as the ST. LOUIS in the movie "Voyage of the Damned".  She was finally scrapped in the early 1980s.
