SS Oceanic Cruise to Bermuda and The Bahamas - July 18, 1981

Recommended Posts

In July of 1981 I sailed from NY to Bermuda and Nassau aboard the SS Oceanic. I booked the cruise through "Singleworld". I recorded the trip on VHS tape, and it sat in the cassette for over 36 years until I learned how to edit it. Included is the departure of the SS Doric ahead of us. Both ships were part of Home Lines. There are scenes at sea, ship's tender into Hamilton Harbor, and tugs bringing us into the port of Nassau. We sailed past or were docked next to many former cruise ships serving both destinations. Included are scenes with the Ms. VEENDAM (2nd) , AMERIKANIS, EMERALD SEAS, the DOLPHIN IV, FLAVIA plus the Tender CANIMA. All are gone now. I traveled with my video equipment by public Bermuda Transit bus to St. George's. It was the cheapest "bus tour" I've ever taken. I finally posted it to YouTube at:

My dance instructors were the dance couple on the former Homeric. If you saw them do their routines, Donna Shelly has a Facebook page that holds some of their past videos. Add a comment if you do.
