Overview

From the luxury markets to the gambling cruises, a history of the industry with many previously unpublished illustrations

 

The taking of an ocean voyage for the pleasure of the voyage itself, and not as a means of traveling from one point to another—this is cruising. This book is about the history of cruising, and it is also about the North American cruise industry; the largest segment of the cruise industry by a long way. From the big players to the luxury markets, to the niche adventure or gambling cruises, this illustrated book looks at the whole industry, past and present. Roger Cartwright considers the effects of some significant disasters on the industry and looks to the future, with the arrival of the mega-ships, heralding the dawn of another new age in cruising.
