      A few from the outside walkway...

      A couple more from my collection:





      Can someone let me know if that picture is showing for them? I am not seeing it here. Dang Picasa ...

      Edit: Now using photobucket - should be working now...

          Just a blank spot: photobucket is quite good as well. I have used them most of the time, but as you probably know already, the interface is a bit different than picasa.

          It's really a great way of reliving this wonderful and greatly missed ships: looking at interior and exterior photos: she comes so much back to life.

          I miss walking around on her decks, so much....

            Yeah - I kinda figured Picasa might not display the images correctly ... Picasa is very easy for me because I use their desktop tool and managing my photos online is really very easy that way, but I will look at photobucket as another option...or my flickr account or maybe I'll just move them to my own web server.

            For now I will just edit the post and repoint the picture to a place that works
            The original post is now working - scroll up to see the images

              SS NORWAY as an Ice Carving

              Taken from the midnight buffet held on International Deck...not sure why they held it there.
              sigpicI will never forget the lovely grand SS NORWAY.
              Past Cruises on her: August 22, 1992. June 4, 1994, April 7, 2002.
              Nearly had our fourth cruise, it was set for November 7, 2003...
              the boiler room disaster of May 4, 2003 took her out of service.
              We ended up on the NORWEGIAN WIND, not the same as the SS NORWAY

                  Didn't they make her in chocolate too, for the chocoholic buffet?

                    Yes, they did..it was in the Leeward Dining Room during our last cruise in 2002. I'll scan that and put it on here.

                      Checkers Lounge, midship. I tried to scale back the size of the photos. I still need to work on that.

                        Checkers.... the one they literally destroyed when they turned it into a sports bar...

                        Was that in the 1996 drydock?

                          I think so, the best way to find out is to check one of my brochures. I'm still not finished scanning photos for this deck, more are on the way

                            I'm fairly convinced it was the 96-drydock, because it was before I signed off the last time, and I remember my disapproval at the conversion.

                            I loved the Checkers... and the atmosphere there in the evenings (before it became a noisy sports bar).

                              I just wished I had gotten more photos of Checkers. I've got some 70 pages left to scan from the 1994 cruise, then I'll be going through the 1992 trip and I may have gotten some from that first trip we did in '92. I'm so glad I got to sail on her three times. I agree with you about the Checkers lounge, they should have just left it as it was, the same thing with the Ibsen Library; that was disgusting what they did to it.
