Searching for crewmembers Sitmar's FAIRSEA 1964

Recommended Posts

Hello, I live in The Netherlands, Amsterdam and I'm searching for (Italian?) crewmembers who worked on Sitmar's FAIRSEA in or about 1964. The ship was especially for migrants who travelled from Wellington, New Zealand, Australia via Naples to Southampton at that time. Does anybody know where I can find information about Sitmar crewmembers, (or a crewmember list), who worked at the FAIRSEA in summer 1964? It is very important for me. Thanks for your information! :)

Your message is looking so lonely, I had to try some sort of answer. It's not much, but I was on the Fairstar in '73, and the only people I remember who had enough seniority to have been on Fairsea in '64 were the chief purser and his deputy, name of Pelle and Pastorini. Another possible candidate was named Palomba. Sorry, but that's all I can remember.

I travelled on Fairsea from Melbourne to Southampton during September / October 1963 and have the passenger list booklet which also lists important staff:

 

Master: Ferruccio Rocconi

Chief Officer: Franco Dagnino

Chief Engineer: Mario Agrenzano

Staff Engineer: Rosario Caravella

Chief Purser: Helmar Seeman

Chief Surgeon: Angelo Mazzardis

Chief Steward: Giusto Mersini

Chef de Cuisine: Antonio Bernardini

Chief Dining Room Steward: Giorgio Cacace

Chief Cabin Steward: Renato Colotto

 

I hope this is of interest :)

I was a frequent cruzer in 74-80 or so.. My good friend 1st Purser , Michele Freschetti..and other officers.. Capt Potenzoni, the Grande one with the big smile..and others.. I only cruzed Fairwind....I still have such a love for that ship..The Higgins, Ron and Jade, from LA, Cal..were good friends of mine as well..their children cut their teeth on Sitmar..My favourite CD was Alan Kent, then there was King Morton, EEE, Everitt Everitt Everitt, and others. Haveing a dinner cocktail in Moby dick was the best..and the Lampadinas..."maravilliosa"!!! do you remember the recipe for them???...the best place for a clandestine meeting was the Gym, in the smoke stack housing! I have sailed (in April '08)with Roger Blum..and we talked of old times..35 or so years ago..Gerry Cahill was also on board and we met. Mr Tringale is in Miami as well, with Roger, for Carnival. I still have my Circolo things to remeber the good times....Ciao...Seniorita Lucky

Hoping you may be able to help me......I am trying to find out who the Chief Purser on FAIRSEA was in 1966/67? Any information you can provide would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks everyone for the answers! I almost forgot about my own post here on this message board almost 5½ years ago. I will check out the names and do more research about the crew members on the Fairsea in 1964.

Hi...Hope I can help.

I was a passenger on the Fairsea from Auckland to Southampton Sept/Oct 1965.

The crew list then were..

Captain....MASTER........Avolio MATARESE

Staff Captain...............Rodolfo Potenzoni

Chief Engineer..............Agar Micheli

Staff Engineer..............Matteo Procida

Chief Purser.................Nicomede Celsi

Deputy Purser..............Angelo Ghiggini

Chief Surgeon..............Bonifacio Oricchio

Chief Steward..............Guiseppe Landi

Chief De Cuisine............Edilio Rossi

Chief D/Room Steward...Franco Rossini

Chief Cabin Steward......Felice Dussol

Orchestras..................Bastoni's Quintet & Merlinis Trio

 

Our table waiter's name was Antonio Cuccaio.. a real nice bloke! I often wonder what happened to him. He always used to say at breakfast "do you want any more torst" (toast). To this day I ask my wife in the morning if she wants any more torst!! :)

 

This was a great trip. The smoothest ever according to the Captain.

We crossed the equator 20 Sept 1965
