The pride of the Greek merchant fleet in the nineteen fifties and one of the most elegant Clyde built liners of the post war era: the Greek Line flagship OLYMPIA berthed at Barbados on Caribbean cruise back in 1966.
I knew very well the OLYMPIA as she was a regular visitor to Lisbon on her transatlantic voyages. In her later Greek years she turned more and more to cruising until laid up in 1974 prior to the bankrupcy of the famous Greek Line in January 1975.
