Editorial Reviews

Midwest Book Review
Liners to the Sun is an engaging and informative ocean travelogue which also offers considerable insight on the past, present, and possible future of ocean cruising. [M]ore than 250 black-and-white photographs and drawings, showcased with an authentically detailed narration, and an attention to the nuts-and-bolts of shipboard voyages, combine to make Liners to the Sun an especially recommended title for anyone wanting or needing to learn more about the realities and experiences of life on the waves in general, and ocean bound cruising in particular.
New York Times
Mandatory reading for those who love ships, the sea and the ways of travelers. The cruise passenger who is serious about his fun will surely carry Liners to the Sun in his luggage.
