This authoritative and superbly-produced title chronicles some of the world's most interesting liners. It has Carmania's usually high production values, but this title is further enhanced with a hardback cover and printed dust jacket. Norway, Denmark and Sweden have produced many fine passenger ships, both for short-sea routes and for longer voyages across the Atlantic and elsewhere. And, of course, Norwegian owners have been at the forefront of the modern booming cruise industry. Indeed, since the 1960s, Scandinavian designers have been responsible for many outstanding and innovative ships that have established the trends followed by other nations. Bruce Peter's new book is an account of the history, design and, above all, the style of these ships. It is highly readable and heavily illustrated with color and black-and-white photographs. Among the ships described are the Winston Churchill; Sagafjord; Vistafjord; the luxurious Kungholms, Gripholms and Stockholms; and the modern cruise ships of companies such as Royal Caribbean and Norwegian Cruise Line.
