About the Author:

John Maxtone-Graham is a maritime historian, author and lecturer specializing in the history of ocean liners and cruise ships. His most famous book, The Only Way To Cross, was recently reissued by Barnes and Noble. He is the co-author of the best-selling Titanic Survivor, by Violet Jessop.

Review:

A witty, elegant and evocative exposition on the history, lore and mystique of ocean travel... -- Boston Herald

Indispensable reading...virtually encyclopedic in its approach. (Travel Weekly) The definitive book about cruise ships... -- Fresno Bee

John Maxtone-Graham has assembled a wealth of detail into an urbanely written volume...mandatory reading for all 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... -- New York Times

John Maxtone-Graham is an irreplaceably charming companion whether aboard ship or, via this book, in my easy chair. The Only Way to Cross made me eager to read Liners to the Sun, now Liners to the Sun is sending me back to re-read the first volume again. -- Donald Westlake

Liners to the Sun is sheer magic. Bravo and thank you, Maxtone-Graham. -- Helen Hayes

The author, John Maxtone-Graham, is perhaps the best writer on the subject of passenger liners...a worthy sequel to his entertaining The Only Way to Cross. -- Christian Science Monitor

The author, who probably writes more interestingly about cruise ships than any other, has done it again...he is an authentic historian and never dull. -- Times Picayune

The master is in top form. This time he covers the cruise ships, giving us the same engrossing blend of pertinent facts, charming trivia, and solid social history that made The Only Way to Cross such a joy to read. -- Walter Lord, author of A Night to Remember
