The story behind the great liners and the golden age of ocean travel, from a true expert of cruise and maritime history
 

Charting the heyday of the great liners, this illustrated and colorful history tells the story of those grand and lavish vessels that cruised around the world carrying their glamorous passengers from port to port. Decorated to the highest of finishes and fitted out in the most luxurious of styles, these floating palaces epitomized their opulent age. Their iconic names, from Titanic to Mauretania, from Queen Elizabeth to QE2, conjure up visions of power, grace, elegance, and nostalgia for this golden age of travel. Accompanied by stunning photographs, artworks, "did you know" facts, and quotations, this is a must-have addition to any maritime library.
