Vicky Penrice's Picture Gallery Part One.
Ex-stewardess Vicky Penrice Joined the Australis for one trip in the spring 1974. Then in 1975 she joined the Britanis, and between `76 and `78 she worked on the Ellinis which involved three trips in all-but they were very long voyages!!!
In 1976 the Ellinis was cruising out of Southampton, during `77 it was the Far Eastern trip and in `78 the ship was cruising out of Genoa.
On her `74 trip she remembers Kate Horseman, Ruth, Johnny Grant, Andy "Bunger"
Elliott, Christine Venn and John L. Sullivan, Jimmy Galloway, Nora, John & Billy Livings, Josie, and Carol Gary the photographer. Vicky remembers Veronica, John Smith, The Southampton FA, Beth from the States and Jackie during the 1976 period. In 1977, during her Far East trips there was Pam and Rose the nurses, George the printer, Geraldine, John Smith, Linda Duncan,
Doug the shopboy, Shirley the stewardess and Cherie Ruben from the pool. On her last trip, in 1978, Vicky remembers Betty the bar lady, Maureen the slot machines attendant and Anne Hendry.

Welcome all visitors to the S.S. Australis Website, which has now been online since 1998!
I will continue to update the site if I receive a new story, or if you have interesting photos taken on the ship during your voyage
on either the southbound, northbound, or on one of the South Pacific cruises. We used to do those trips several times a year
from Melbourne, Sydney and Auckland (New Zealand).
I am deeply moved by the interest and wonderful contributions from the numerous passengers and crew over many years.
