Charting 100 years of cruising the ocean waves, in rich colour photographs.

This latest book from William H. Miller presents 150 photographs, all in rich colour, 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 favourites such as the pre-World War II Franconia, Reliance, Nieuw Amsterdam and Normandie; then, in greater numbers, a 'fleet' starting from the 1950s & '60s – ships such as the Caronia, Andes, Queen of Bermuda, Nassau, Italia, Bahama Star, Reina Del Mar, Oceanic, Skyward, Song of Norway, Hamburg, Royal Viking Star and Queen Elizabeth 2. Steaming into the 21st century, we see the likes of the Royal Princess, Statendam, Crystal Symphony, Oriana, Queen Mary 2, Allure of the Seas and Viking Star.

William H. Miller has written over 100 books on passenger ships and is an acknowledged world expert in his field. He has received the National Maritime History Award in the US and the Silver Riband Award, and he created the passenger ships database for the Ellis Island Immigration Museum. He has appeared in numerous documentaries and news broadcasts, and is a frequent guest lecturer aboard cruise ships.
