SS ORIANA laid up at Pyrmont

Photo of the SS Oriana laid up at No. 21 Pyrmont Wharf, Sydney, Australia.
No date was provided but I think this might be in 1986 after she was retired as a cruise ship.

This was 1986 after she retired. We were there for ages with a skeleton crew that had full range on the ship! I was Entertainments Officer then and was the one who went round with various japanese possible buyers to sell the ship. Captain Jackson was the old man - I have photos of the ship after it was all stacked up as nothing was allowed to be taken off after we moved to Pyrmont. The end of a lovely lady - still the best in the fleet.
