Sinopsis: Completed in the early 1960s, the France was the last of the great French Line passenger ships on the celebrated run to and from New York. She was not only the national flagship, but the longest liner yet built, and a ship with fantastic interiors, superb service, and the most exquisite food. Highly successful, she did lose out in the end to the unsurpassable speed of jet aircraft, was laid-up, and lingered for five years before becoming a hugely successful cruise ship. In 1979 80, the indoor France was converted to the outdoor Norway. She became the largest cruise ship in the world, an innovator, a great prelude to today’s mega-liners. She endured until 2005 and has since ended her days at the hands of scrappers in far-off India. Indeed, she was one of the greatest, grandest, most beloved of all 20th-century ocean liners.
About the Author:
Bill Miller has written more than 70 books on passenger ships and is an acknowledged world expert on these vessels, appearing in more than three dozen TV documentaries and newscasts on maritime topics, and winning the American National Maritime History Award and the Ocean Liner Council’s Silver Riband Award.
