  1. Thanks for this wonderful picture (Skyfotos ??),
    probably the best of all Hanseatic pictures I have ever seen. My parents sailed with Hanseatic in Sept. 65 fm NY to Cuxhaven first class, I have still lots of memorabilia fm this trip !I'm impressed of all your fine efforts to save the Hamburg, it is unbelievable what you have done for this ex German vessel !Really great !Thanks som much !
    best wishes
