I have the honor to make a 18 month long voyage on Ohrmazd in 1975. Visited almost all major countries with my father (Mohammed Irfan Siddiqui) who was 2nd engineer of the ship. He is also one of them who checked & took the delivery of the ship and took it to Karachi.

She was a very nice and unusual designed ship.

I made an eight day long voyage on Ohrmazd with my family in April 1971 from Chittagong (former East Pakistan) to Karachi, stopping at Ceylon (Sri Lanka) for a night. It was, indeed a beautiful ship, and we children enjoyed the trip spending most of the time chatting next to the swimming pool.

A beautiful ship indeed and pride for the Pakistan merchant fleet of her time.
