It started in the Black Sea at Constanta, - Romania -, through the Bosporus and the Dardanelles into the Aegean- and the Mediterranean Sea, passing Gibraltar into the Atlantic Ocean going south around the Cape of Good Hope -, into the Indian Ocean, heading for the Malacca Strait and further on through the South China Sea, the Formosa Strait and the East China Sea to the final destination, Shanghai in China!
Some trip!
It started in Romania on January 3rd. 1972 and ended in China February 17th. 1972 - - -

In dry dock again - - - -
This time in Hong Kong, - in November 1973 -, just a few months after the docking in Japan!
Here First Officer Birger Hauerslev inspects a damage in "Emma Jebsen's" bottom after she hit an uncharted reef between the Philippines and Taiwan.
I was on vacation, - but since I lived in Hong Kong in those days -, I did of course take the opportunity to visit my old ship and have a look at the damage - - -
