Hi, just come across this site and reading through has brought back some good memories.
I was on the Dunera from 1st to 15th Oct 1967 from St. Hughs school in Grantham. We sailed from Immingham, visiting Corunna, Lisbon, Tangier and Gibralter. Then sailed back into Tilbury.
I, with 2 of my schoolmates were lucky enough to have a 3 birth cabin, while the rest of the group were down in the dorms below. I don’t remember why we were the privelidged 3, maybe we were drawn from a hat or something.
The trip cost £30 and we were allowed to take £10 spending money then, which was a fortune then.
Lessons were still part of our daily routine and we had to keep a daily ships log which I still have somewhere. Alas, I think there was only one more trip to be made for the Dunera before she was due to be scrapped. It was a wonderful experience, but I look back now and wonder where the years have gone.
