    I,m Denise Curtis (nee Cottingham) back in 1966 I went on the Nevasa. I went with Chobham Secondary Modern School in Surrey and Bagshot School joined us. We flew to Venice and got stranded due to the ship could not dock due to the bad weather it was just before Easter. It was a trip I have never forgotten

    My name is Sheila née Boshell. We sailed from Southampton in October 1968 for a cruise around the Med. I went to Danemark school in Winchester. We visited Spain, Italy and Greece. It cost £68 and we were allowed £40 pocket money for 2 weeks. Fabulous childhood memories.

    I have just found a letter written by my father Herbert George Cavill to my mother written aboard HMT Nevasa in December 1938. He was in RAF and returning to England from Egypt. Some troops were aboard from Basra to Karachi, Aden, Port Sudan, Port Said.

    I was with Fernhill School and sailed on the Navasa early sixties to Lisbon, Gibraltar, Malta, Egypt (Cairo) and Venice flying back to UK. What ever happened to my first girlfriend on board that memorable trip?

    Hi. I was on the Baltic cruise in 1966 when a pupil at Ferryhill GT School. Had a marvellous time. Made friends with lots of different kids from Bishop Auckland, Darlington, etc. Only downside I remembered was awful fruit juice made from powder. 😕
