I hope Sue won't mind me suggesting that you post this problem to TSL's
'sister' list, Mariners. Not wishing to suggest that there aren't lots of
knowledgeable subscribers on TSL <g> but Mariners was set up exactly for
this kind of thing - knotty problems concerning (often non-emigrant) ships
and crew. We can't help with passengers on Mariners but we do have many
other people with knowledge about more obscure shipping lines/routes like
this. You'll need to subscribe - send a message to
with the one word SUBSCRIBE in the body of
See you there!
