1960 – 2005 / A ship with a singular look, the Oriana’s exterior design stood out among her contemporaries. She was the largest ship of her time operating the Australian run, and she served profitably until 1986. She then spent some 20 years as a floating venue at various Asian ports, before being sold for scrap in 2005.
1961 – 1997 / The ‘Great White Whale’ of the P&O Line, Canberra was one of the last great liners built in the British Isles. Serving in the Falklands War, she had a long and prosperous career that eventually ended at the shipbreakers.
1966 – 2015 / Also known as Sea Princess (I), Victoria (II), Mona Lisa, and Oceanic II / The largest and fastest, but also final ship built for the Swedish-American Line, the fourth Kungsholm was the crowning achievement of the ‘White Viking Fleet’. When the company folded, she went on to have a career under many different flags, but was sadly beached at Alang in 2015 and dismantled there.
