Accommodation Plan - Lloyd Triestino Line, Gugliemo Marconi, circa 1963 Document Reg. No: HT 2617

Summary:
Unfolded accommodation plan for Lloyd Triestino Liner 'Gugliemo Marconi', circa 1963. The Gugliemo Marconi could hold up to 289 first class passengers and 1594 tourist class passengers, it was also air conditioned throughout. The plan shows illustrations of the captain's deck, the lido deck, deck A accommodation, the promenade deck and decks C, D, E and F accommodation.

The Guglielmo Marconi and her sister ship the Galileo Galilei were both completed in 1963 for Lloyd Triestino's Genoa-Sydney service. In 1976, Guglielmo Marconi was transferred to the Naples-Brazil-River Plate service of Italia Line. In 1979, both ships were transferred to Italia Crociere as fulltime cruise ships. This was not a success and the Guglielmo Marconi was sold to Costa Crociere in 1983.

I had a wonderful time in the spring of 1963 sailing back from Greece, I was young and shuffled many red disks off the side of the ship (oops)I have recently found dinner cards, daily planners, and a set of Teletype News Articles that announced many things about President Kennedy and the Cuban Crisis, the attacks on the Russian Cargo ships by communist haters that wanted Cuba FREE from Casto, and the Washington D.C announcements of Russian withdrawals, yes we were in the middle of the ocean headed to NY and we were very concerned about all the attacks on ships not far from where we were at that time. roofmass2@gmail.com
