Oronsay of P&O-Orient Line built 1951

The second of Orient Line's post-war liners, Oronsay stayed on the traditional England to Australia via Suez route until 1954, when she made a highly-successful detour across the Pacific to the US West Coast. Like the other P&O-Orient Line ships which sailed long routes in warm climates, the standard of food, service and entertainment were almost "cruise-like" by modern standards. She became a regular visitor to Port Everglades until withdrawn and scrapped in 1975.
