  • Story
    Do you have a story that is related to the history of the Red Star Line, a Red Star Line passenger, or to past or contemporary migration? We want to hear it!
  • Millions of passengers travelled with Red Star Line and told stories about their journeys to their children and grandchildren. You can read some of the most beautiful stories here. Maybe you have a past or present migration story of your own, which you would like to tell us. Share it with us via ‘Your story’.

Perhaps it is your story too. You may recognise yourself in a person; you might recognise a place, a voyage, an arrival or departure, maybe even a new beginning. Welcome aboard!
