Default Titanic.. days long gone.

The last oceanliner was the Norway and it used to be called the S. S. France. If you look at pictures of the Norway and a modern cruise ship you would notice quite a difference. The Norway was 1035 feet long and the bow was more slim and pointed, the aft was more rounded and not like the aft of today's cruise ships. The Norway was launched in 1962 and was owned by the French Line before NCL purchased her. We did a cruise on this ship back in 2002 or 2003? That was a cruise to remember!

The last Cunard ship's are the Queen MaryII and the Queen Victoria. I would say they are "cruise ships" but they have a strong connections to the old oceanliners of a by gone area. I would love to do a crossing on the Queen Mary II, maybe someday I can work it out??
