A pity. Shaw Savill stuck mainly to Australia and New Zealand but someone out there might know differently......................

They don't make them this good looking any longer, I was hoping to remember if this vessel ever came to Montreal, but Shaw Savill lines was not a familiar steamship line in Montreal, I don't recall ever seeing her. which is unfortunate.
