Entering service in 1938, the Nieuw Amsterdam was the Holland America Line flagship until the construction of the Rotterdam in the late 1950s. Her pre-war life was short and she was used as a troopship during the Second World War, carrying many thousands of Allied troops to all corners of the world.

The fascinating story of the grand old lady, darling of the Dutch, and the largest vessel built in Rotterdam This book traces the distinguished career of the Holland America Line flagship Nieuw Amsterdam. One of the most popular liners on the Atlantic, she regularly visited Southampton, Hoboken-New York, Rotterdam, and latterly Fort Lauderdale and the Caribbean. The Dutch art-deco flagship was named for the Dutch settlement New Amsterdam, modern-day New York. Her pre-war life was short and with the fall of Holland in the Second World War she was requisitioned by the British Ministry of Transport under Cunard. After conversion she was a British troopship, carrying thousands of Allied troops to all corners of the world. After the war, she remained in Holland America Line service until 1974, the last ship to retain the Holland America Line's green, yellow and white funnels. Despite boiler problems in 1967, she was refitted with US Navy-surplus boilers and sailed on, cruising, until withdrawn from service in 1974.

Painted in shades of green and known affectionately as the ‘Green Goddess’, Cunard’s Caronia of 1949 ushered in the era of modern cruising. Designed almost exclusively for an untapped passenger market – luxury cruising – she represented Britain’s recovery and moreover the rebirth of the world’s maritime industry after the devastation of the Second World War. With such illustrious Cunard predecessors as the Queen Mary, the ill-fated Lusitania, and the record-breaker Mauretania, Caronia was an instant favourite with the world’s rich and famous. She gathered an exclusive, often American, clientele – the ‘mink and diamonds set’ – who sailed on her year after year. Many passengers lived on board for years, giving her the air of an ultra-wealthy country club. Yet she ignominiously met her end while under tow to the breaker’s yard, ending up on the rocks at Guam after running aground during a typhoon. Her subsequent salvage was the largest ever undertaken by the US Army Corps of Engineers. Illustrated with previously unpublished photographs and rare memorabilia, including work from maritime artist Robert Lloyd, this history of one of Cunard’s most beloved liners is a must for all those who fondly remember the ‘Green Goddess’.

RMS Aquitania was in service for decades, and was very much beloved. The third in Cunard Line's "grand trio" of express liners, running mate of the lost Lusitania and the legendary Mauretania (1907), Aquitania was the last surviving four-funnelled ocean liner. Aquitania was pressed into service during both world wars and was one of the longest serving passenger liners of the 20th century. She was also one of the most elegant, nicknamed the "ship beautiful." Maritime authors J. Kent Layton and Tad Fitch have collaborated to put together the most evocative and exciting collection of imagery relating to this historic vessel ever shown.
