Great Mediterranean Passenger Ships

"It is hard to think of the passenger liners from the golden era of Mediterranean cruising without also conjuring the nostalgic, dream-like vision of azure-blue waters, bright sunshine and swimming pools with clusters of umbrellas and sunbathing passengers. The great age of Mediterranean liners began in the 1920s when the Italians built their first big ships, such as the Augustus, Saturnia and Conte Grande. In the 1930s, things got really interesting with the creation of the superliners Rex and Conte di Savoia. In the 1950s and '60s, as Itlay built a huge post-war fleet, Greece, Spain, Portugal, Turkey and Israel commissioned their biggest ships yet."--Back cover.
