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.
A propos de l'auteur: John Maxtone Graham is a writer and sailing enthusiast.
