Union Castle/SA Windsor Castle, Southampton to Cape Town way back in '77.
It was the RMS Windsor Castle of (by that time) the Union-Castle Safmarine company. She was the flagship. I was on her in January '66 from CPT to SOU and am currently in CPT, leaving for LHR today and the journey will take 12 hours, rather than 12 days. But one of the reasons that the line folded!

She was a lovely ship and now back to the thread ...
