jaybird25, no need to apologise. We all have to start somewhere, so if you are still new to all of this then welcome. Yes, Mauretania was very beautiful and it was sad that she had a career of only 27 years but the mid-1960s were a tough time for Cunard and times and people's tastes were changing rapidly.

Mauretania was a 'one off', she did not have a sister ship.
