France/Norway: France's Last Liner/Norway's First Mega Cruise Ship

$70.00 (You save $50.00)

S.S. France of 1962 was paradigm of elegance, style and speed. Christened by Madame de Gaulle, she was, at 1035 feet, the world's longest passenger vessel, perfectly attuned to postwar demographies with a select first class and huge tourist class.


Renowned maritime historian John Maxtone-Graham is uniquely qualified to document France/Norway's two consecutive lives. As a dedicated passenger during both, he is dauntingly familiar with her original design and debut no less than every facet of her amazing transformation.
