About this title

Synopsis:

For decades, great ocean-liners were the only way to make passage across the Atlantic. Now, in the age of the jet-engine, the liner serves a much more recreational purpose. Each year, thousands embark on popular cruises to ports from Alaska to Bermuda, from the Norwegian fjords to the Greek Isles, in search of relaxation, adventure and romance. Liners to the Sun revels in the past glories of the ocean-liner and examines with thorough and affectionate detail today's best ships. Ship aficionados and casual cruisers alike will gain a new insight and appreciation for these great ships that have become "floating vacation resorts." Liners to the Sun takes a candid look at their rich history, construction and crew. With stories gathered from years of research as well as his own personal experiences, author John Maxtone-Graham reveals how ship, crew and passenger have changed-and stayed the same. Filled with photos and drawings, this fascinating book proves that the journey, not the destination, is the most fun.

Shipping Terms:

SALES TAX: The AbeBooks checkout system cannot detect when California sales tax must be added to your purchase price. As a bona fide California reseller, if we are shipping to a point within the state of California, we are required to collect state sales tax. After confirming availability, we will instruct AbeBooks to request your approval of the sales tax necessary based on the selling price of your purchase. SHIPPING CHARGES: Please note that about 13.5% of the shipping and handling charge is retained by AbeBooks as a fee levied against the bookseller and not passed along for purchasing postage and packaging supplies. That is much of the reason why the shipping charge is significantly higher than actual postage costs. This is especially true for international shipping where international postal costs are high to begin with. Occasionally (such as when ordering a set of books, it will be necessary for us to ask domestic buyers for some additional shipping funds. In this case, after confirming your book(s) is available, we will ask AbeBooks to request appropriate additional shipping charges. In practice, this is a rare occurrence on domestic orders. See below for international shipping. PACKING: All books will be carefully packed to insure safe arrival. We use either quality shipping boxes or other shipping containers augmented by bubble, paper cushioning, or cardboard chipboard to insure safe delivery in the same condition as book was sent. INTERNATIONAL ORDERS: Our default shipping cost is for shipping in a flat rate global priority envelope, small box, or flat rate bag. If your book is too large or too expensive to ship in these containers we will be asking AbeBooks to request adequate additional funds so we can ship your book safely and securely. All international shipments will be listed as books-merchandise on customs forms with value as actual invoice cost. No exceptions. If you have any concerns, please contact us via e mail prior to placing an order for an accurate shipping quotation.
