Canberra Tourist Class Cabin Plan
From 1960, and with the acquisition of the remaining Orient Line shares by P and O, the new joint company became know as P and O-Orient Lines. At this time Canberra was to operate as a two class liner and so two sets of cabin plans were produced, one for each class, examples of which are shown above. The issuing of these plans continued until Canberra became a one-class vessel, when new brochures advertising her cruising role were produced with one plan showing all cabins.

One of the most popular items, usually in my day purchased quite cheaply from the various on-board bars, was the Company's playing cards, many of which were made/printed by De La Rue featuring a variety of designs on the back of the cards. Some of these designs are shown below and are part of my collection. Other shipping companies, of course, also produced their own excellent cards.
