Spanning the Globe: The Last Blue Water Liners
Before the airlines and their speedy jets conquered the long-distance travel world by the 1960s, the passenger ship was the primary link between continents.

Great shipping companies and some of their fleets appear such as the French Line, Italian Line, British India Line, P&O and American President Lines — and ships both large and small. It is fascinating tale of ships & the sea!
