Cruise Britannia is the first complete history of the British cruise ship, from the dawn of cruising through the glamorous thirties and beyond to the current fleets of dedicated cruise ships. It takes a nostalgic look back at ships such as P&O's white sisters of the 1930s, to Black Watch, as well as Andes, Canberra, Victoria, QE2, Saga Rose and a large fleet of other ships, both large and small, all dedicated to catering for the tourist.
