Thanks Velvetee i'll try that as well.
w0w - some "long shot" M....

I was also on board when (sad story) I lost a friend 'Bali' in that fire.. You may remember me - I was the big Brit with a beard (Chief Photographer).. I also sailed on her into China (the first cruise ship to go into China for 27 years - after Mao.) A cruise company rep confiscated all the photos I took and stole them - I never saw the many fire fighting shots that I took again... :(

She's now no more - After being sold to a Greek company it caught fire while being refit in Perama docks, Greece. and was towed out to sea, capsized and sunk near the island of Kynosoura

Were you a passenger, or crew/staff ?
