    Sad day, I knew the end was near for the Egal Empress. It is sad because this was the first ship I ever sailed on, that was the 1959 Christmas cruise out of New York. I was all of 11 years old one of the ports was Cuba, we did not go ashore this was when Castro was coming to power. I travel a few times aboard her to 7-days cruise and a 3 times out of Florida as The Regal Empress. I have many fine pictures in my mind of her. Currently I have the wallpaper on my work PC a picture of Regal Empress in Ft. Lauderdale.
