It's incredible that I have visited this splendid ship in the first call at Rio in the 70's. For this visit I give to the captain a painting of the ship by me. Whete is this painting now ???

Thanks for the comments. Regarding Stars & Stipes, she was in 1972 obviously still in Trans-Atlantic service, but from Venice? Maybe a few times in addition to Genova?
