This latest book from William H. Miller presents 150 photographs, all in rich color, and covers a span of almost 100 years: from the 1920s to the start of the current, boom cruising decade. It includes many early, often seasonal, liners; then the more purposeful generation of "floating hotels" that began in the 1960s.

There are favorites such as the pre-World War II FranconiaRelianceNieuw Amsterdam, and Normandie; then, in greater numbers, a "fleet" starting from the 1950s & 1960s--ships such as the CaroniaAndesQueen of BermudaNassauItaliaBahama StarReina Del MarOceanicSkywardSong of NorwayHamburgRoyal Viking Star, and Queen Elizabeth 2. Steaming into the 21st century, we see the likes of the Royal PrincessStatendamCrystal SymphonyOrianaQueen Mary 2Allure of the Seas, and Viking Star.
