My name is Michael and I am an amateur novelist. Currently, I am looking for information on vessels crossing the Pacific Ocean in 1981 or early 1982.
Thus, I would like to know if any ships (cargoes, cruise ships…) left Australia or New Zealand to go to Chilean or Argentinian ports at that time, after crossing the South Pacific.
Would you know then what types of ships these were? Oil tankers, container ships, cruise ships, others? Also, would you have the names of some of these ships and the nature of their cargo, their itinerary or schedule ?
For instance, were there any Auckland to Valparaiso thing ? Or a cruise starting from the UK going round the world stopping by Australia / New Zealand and passing by Valparaiso, Punta Arenas or Buenos Ayres ?
In the event that no ship would have passed through there, were there sea routes in the other direction, through Southeast Asian waters and then the Indian Ocean and the Atlantic Ocean (thus passing through other ports maybe, such as Singapore or Cape Town)?
I would be very grateful if you could provide me with this information or direct me to somebody who could or to a website containing archives.
