    Προεπιλογή Regina Prima (Regina, President Hoover, Panama)

    Dear friends, I found it strange that this emblematic ship which was so important in the development of Chandris Cruises does not have a thread of its own (at least I cannot find one) so have decided to open one with a few good pictures and photos from a selection of brochures (in two parts)

    She was an elegant ship in a very American way and had a certain style which proved very popular with Chandris cruisers. Her pattern of cruises was mainly Mediterranean/Europe in summer and Caribbean in winter.
    And she had some very special and unique features including twin swimming pools with what seemed a connecting slide! and a very elegant split level lounge from her American days. Another unusual feature was that she used one of the forward kingposts as an exhaust as you can see from some of the pictures.

    All in all she proved to be an excellent acquisition for Chandris Cruises and together with Romanza were regarded as the biggest and best in their fleet (excepting the Regina Magna of course which came later) before the merger

    Enjoy, Henry.

    Προεπιλογή Regina

    Here is a good photo of her sailing under what looks like the Lisbon bridge or could it be Istanbul ? Hope someone finds this thread of interest!

    Best regards, Henry.

    Great thread Henry! the "small" Regina -compared to Regina Magna- was one of those classic conversions of a passenger/cargo ship into a cruise ship that used to happen in Greece during the 60s/70s.
    But those ships, that were never designed for such a service, formed the foundations for what Chandris later become, and for the greek cruise industry that flourished until the 80s.

    As for the photo under the bridge, it is definetely Lisbon.

    Beautiful and rather rare pictures Henry, we are all grateful. Notice the smoking left part of the front king post. Could it be a kitchen underneath?

    Καρτ ποστάλ του Ρεγκίνα, πιθανότατα στα φιορδ της Νορβηγίας.

    Great photo Aris, is it from a brochure and where in Greece was it taken? It looks like a fjord!

    It is an official Chandris postcard, and I feel it must be in the Norwegian fjords. We have seen Regina Magna there, so it seems that Chandris was visiting the area frequently.
