Captains' Retirement Age
« on: Aug 25, 2014, 07:34 PM »
Prior to the retirement of Commodore Sir Arthur Rostron, retirement age for Cunard captains was 63.  It was changed to 60 at the time of his retirement.  At some point after that, I believe it was raised again.  Does anyone have information about that ?

Thanks !

While I was there is was 61 - but I know some people went beyond that - it was negotiated in individual cases.
