Perhaps rather than just throw the cards up in the air, you could give us more background about them. Where did you get them, what else accompanied them etc

I would say decades older. Several of the men in vests appear to be wearing chains and fobs associated with pocket watches. The newsboy caps on a few also point to pre-war. Given that Velox was a subsidiary of Kodak in the beginning decades of the 20th century, my guess is this is a perhaps a pic of a Commonwealth ship crew. Maybe British/ANZ with Malay/Thai/Burmese, 1920s or 30s.
And I agree, OP needs to do more than just post a picture. Context is important: how did you get it? From where? Were you told anything at all about it? Because let's be honest, we're all just guessing.

classic_paper, I agree. It could be a ship based at one of the European colonies in southeast Asia. In that case I also agree 1920s. The size of the vessel does suggest it is that region and not the Atlantic or Mediterranean.

The stewards are south and southeast Asian. So, in the 'East' 1920s, if the vessel is in the 'West' it must be post WW2.

Is this the Filipino crew? /during American possession/ Are the stewards Filipinos? Are the captain and navigator Americans? Your opinion?
