SEAWIND CROWN: 1961 - Photo collection from agent's visit

Product Description

Seawind Cruises - Sixteen snapshots (3.5" by 4.75") taken aboard the SEAWIND CROWN during a travel agent tour in the early 1990s.

Fifteen photos show ship spaces ranging from cabins and the chapel to lounges and the dining room.

When built, the ship was filled with Portuguese artwork. Much of it survived the years and you can see glimpse of it here.

One exterior photo shows the SEAWIND CROWN at anchor. But look closely and you'll see the name on the bow is VASCO DA GAMA. Why?

The vessel was built in 1961 as the Portuguese INFANTE DOM HENRIQUE. Enthusiasts may remember this ship as the one that was rusting and landlocked for many years as an abandoned hotel in Portugal. But in 1986 Seawind Cruises bought the relic and thoroughly revamped her as VASCO DA GAMA. In the 1990s they leased the liner to Seawind Cruises who renamed her but didn't paint out the bow name until purchasing the ship several years later. Premier Cruises spent millions rehabbing the ship in the late 1990s, only to go bankrupt a few years later.

The lovely SEAWIND CROWN went to the breakers in 2004.

Excellent condition.
