Synopsis: This extensive volume, newly updated and expanded, provides a complete history of the British cruise ship, from the dawn of cruising through the glamorous 1930s and up to the current fleets of dedicated cruise ships. It takes a nostalgic look back at ships such as P&O’s white sisters, the Caronia the first dedicated cruise ship and such modern vessels as Andes, Canberra, Victoria, and QE2.
From the Publisher: For over 100 years British shipping lines have used their vessels for cruising. Originally devised as a means of using surplus capacity at times of depression, cruising has grown to become the fastest–growing sector of the British tourist industry. Nowadays, the old liners converted for cruising are almost gone and the market is full of sleek, glamorous cruise ships built to cater to tourists and sailing to locations like the Mediterranean, Alaska and the Caribbean.
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 Caronia, the first dedicated cruise ship, as well as Andes, Canberra, Victoria, QE2 and a large fleet of other ships, both large and small, all dedicated to catering to the tourist.
