    Mary Ann,

    His name was Sir James Bisset. He served as Master of both Queens. I can't put my hand on his book just yet,,, that is another story in itself. Will keep looking.

    Okay, I know this won't stump you, but let's see how much research time it takes you. What are the current names and leasing companies of the former Renaissance ships?

    Commodore Sir James Bisset was one of several very famous ones in the once-grand Cunard fleet.

    BurBunny - can't give you a complete answer yet...but...

    Cruiseinvest LLC first took over R1, 2, 5, 6 and 7.

    P&O/Princess took R3 & 4, renamed Pacific and Tahitian Princess. Tahitian Princess now sails year 'round for Princess; Pacific Princess will be shared by both companies.

    Oceana Cruises (Joe Watters & Frank Del Rio) have since taken R1 (Oceana Regatta) and R2 (Oceana ?) and have an option for R6.

    Still have to scrounge up R5 and 8. ;)

    The Mayflower is first recorded in 1609. She was at that time owned by Christopher Nichols, Richard Child, Thomas Short, and Christopher Jones. :devil

    I believe it was after her first voyage to the U.S. that she acquired the short-lived name of SS Minnow. :grin

    Mary Ann,

    If you are correct about the Mayflower, you have got to get a life.

    No, Bruce. It's a question of keeping up with bOBert. :grin

    And with that, I do have a life (I think) and have to log off for awhile...

    Enjoy the day.
