The stunning elegance and luxurious interiors of today’s vast fleet of cruise liners remains unrecorded in all but holiday brochures. This book gives a complete overview of the cream of these ships, today’s queens of the sea.

Each liner is illustrated and described with colour illustrations of external and interior views. Details of the design, building and service history of each vessel are provided with vital statistics of the ship and its facilities.

Among the ships included are Cunard’s Queen Victoria and Queen Mary 2, the big new Princess Line liners - Ruby, Grand Sea and Celebrity Eclipse, the two Ocean Village ships and the largest of the P&O liners Ventura, Oceana, Arcadia, Aurora and Artemis.

This is a book of reference for maritime enthusiasts, would-be holiday cruisers and those who have been passengers.

Peter C. Smith is one of the world’s leading authors on things maritime and is highly respected throughout the world.

The author has presented a first class text incorporated much interesting information both on vessels in service and some of the thinking of future ones. It is thus a very useful reference book as well as an alternative memento to the individual ship brochure for the passenger. For those who like to draw comparisons, it demonstrates rather well the flexibility of ship designers to meet the needs of the would-be owners to maximise their revenue. It could also be of help to those contemplating a cruise (before considering the costs).

Nautical Magazine - Oct 2011

Describes modern cruise ships, from AIDA ships to Zuiderdam, with photos of all those featured, together with technical data. With detailed chapters covering how the ships are built and operated, it is intended as a reference work for maritime enthusiasts as well as those who go on cruises.
