    It sailed several times a year - do you want passenger lists for the entire year?

    I just don't think you can be serious - you would have to contact the shipline, the successors, ask for the passenger manifests. I would not be surprised if they don't exist.

    I did a quick Google on it and I have to point out that this is not something that anyone here is going to be able to do. I am even willing to bet that those records probably don't even exist anymore.

    Agreed - the ship line might respond to a request for one sailing, but not the entire year, at least without paying a fee.

    The manifests are public record - Passenger records held in Melbourne - Fact sheet 172

    A genealogy site (which is my guess what this is about), usually requires a fee, usually has good info, not necessarily verified.

    I do this sort of thing for a living - and it takes hours and hours of time.

    Thank you for your advise, still trying the link you suggested, as I now know that it was the Oriana June 1968 Manifest that I am looking for, so far with no luck.
    Do appreciate you took the time to answer.
    This is not a genealogy thing though, but important evidence for an appeal case

    "I don't think it's available in the web, I think it's confidential you can ask the airlines about it for sure answer.

    What airlines? It's a ship line.

    And, yes, the info is available, as I said. Not everything is on line, but it is available.
