    I was onboard the Helgoland in 1969. Just as a visitor. Was a beautiful ship. Was told not to visit in U.S. Uniform as it treated everyone, VC and NVA included. -Submitted by: Doc Davison [free55552001@yahoo.com] 2008-01-08

    Helgoland today plies the waters as the Galapagos Legend after a full refit. I sailed with this vessel amongst the Galapogos Islands in 2004 for a medical congress. It carries just under 100 passengers and had been beautifully refitted (just Google-image search for Galapagos Legend). On a tour of the bridge, I spotted another pic of it in DaNang harbor in ~'67 or so and commented to the Captain that I'd been based about 30 miles NE of there during the war myself...leading to an unrestricted tour of the engine and engineering spaces, nearly as clean as a kitchen.
