Southampton to Australia and New Zealand I think out via Suez and back via Panama calling at some exotic locations in those days, Suva, Honolulu etc.
She started cruising in the 1970s ( that's when I tried to go on her anyway) but I think she became too expensive to run. She had a lot of problems and no-one wanted her so she went to the proverbial Kaohsiung breakers at the end of 1975.

Thanks Derek and kentmalo.
I don't know where she was going at this time, but I think she was on cruises from Southampton. This was taken during the early days of my interest in ships, and my memory has faded.

What was her sailing route?, did she have a regular run?, or did she do cruises. great photo btw.

Much maligned unfortunately. Tried twice to go on her but she was booked out so couldn't have been too bad! Saw her on her trials on the Clyde. Unfortunately she didn't have long to go from the date of your pic. :-(
