Rob Prin's Picture Gallery
Rob Prins Picture Gallery.
Rob and his family moved to New Zealand in 1962, but his mother got homesick and so they moved back to Holland in 1970. Rob was just 10 years old when they travelled on the Australis back to the Netherlands. The ship was then on voyage 24, northbound, and called into Acapulco, Mexico before going through the Panama Canal, and then stopping at Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

Regretfully I am "running down" the S. S. Australis website due to increasing family and health issues.

I may occasionally update the site if I receive a great story/photos from ex-crew only, if it is a new contact.

I know there are still stories to share from ex-crew all over the world, who haven't yet been in touch.

I am deeply moved by the interest and wonderful contributions from numerous passengers and crew over many years.


Warm regards.
