One of my favorite post war brochures for French Liners … I call this the medallion brochure since the cover has art shows the 3 souvenir medallions that were created for the ships … and could be bought in their gift shops. Pink and gold accents and lots of interior photos fill this brochure for these 3 French ladies. This is in excellent condition and looks like it was never opened.
I have always loved this ship … and NAL did a very nicely detailed deck plans for all of their fleet members. This plan appears to never have been unfolded and has a California agency stamp on the rear cover. Excellent condition.
Super simple little blue directory for the Lovely Statendam done after her “Cinderella” refit. A few little scuffs and erase marks.
The ship was almost exclusively tourist class and was really intended for the budget minded traveler. At only 482 feet in length … I can only imagine how she would have been tossed about the stormy Atlantic in bad weather. This plan is in excellent never used condition.
Super English language deck plan for the beautiful Gorky. She started her days for German Atlantik as the “space ship” Hamburg. Buddy Peter rescued many items from here when she met her demise at Alang, India. Printed in Germany … this plan is in excellent condition.
Excellent huge fold out … one side dedicate to cruise and destination info … the other side are full color deck plans and ship information. The color photography is just gorgeous … and this brochure is in pristine condition! Just lovely!
Great smaller 4 – 8 panel fold out for this ATW cruise .. great condition … appears to be printed by the Merchants Bank Travel Department in Indianapolis, Indiana. A great companion piece if you have the larger brochures and items.
Quite a nice passenger list for this voyage from Southampton to Buenos Aires. It looks like the trip was well patronized thought the autograph pages are blank. The cover is just graphically outstanding.
What a magnificent cruise this must have been … starting jan16th from NYC and Arrive back there on April 16th ..3 months of QE2 bliss! You would have started through the Panama Canal on Jan 24th and returned through on April 4th after your Pacific Adventure! Great condition.
Nice flyer guide on the voyage through the canal zone. These would have been available on any cruise through the canal … this particular one has a photo on the QE2 inside and well as tankers, freighters and other craft.
All the plans done for the SSUS were done very well … these will not disappoint. Nice colors and good-sized color photos of cabins and public spaces. Like New condition. A must have for a serious collector!
She was offering over 30 Atlantic crossings for this season. Nice little brochure stuffed with info and in great shape.
Wonderful set of QE2 deck plans dated February 197. There are like new condition … probably never even opened
One of the original post WW2 cruise ships … the Nassau started life as the Mongolia for P&O. After a few names and company changes … she was bought by Incres and transformed into quite a little gem of a tropical cruise ship. Though there were many hints of her prior life … Incres added modern furnishings in bright and tropical colors as well as amenities like a double swimming pool and offered 10000 feet of Lido deck area covered with deck chairs and umbrellas. She made a lot of cash and allowed Incres to expand with the Victoria later in the 50’s. Great condition and excellent color photos. There are a few page wrinkles. The colors are just delightful!
Great little fold out describing the many cruises and crossings for Italian Line fleet. Lovely cover graphics! Good condition with typical wear.
Excellent large fold out highlighting the 2 ships in detail. Heavy stock paper with lovely full color renderings of the ships exterior and many of the public rooms. Even includes info on the funnels. Great condition with a few internal wrinkles.
2 lovely and pristine unused Baggage stickers from the Oceanic and her “Sun Way” cruise program. Great graphic of the ship and lovely colors.
My favorite later interior foldout for this beautiful ship. The fold out is in pristine condition and full of great color photos and neat areas of graphics. A delightful item.
One of my favorite early interior items for this beautiful ship. According to this foldout the Colombo was “a ship designed for sunshine and open-air freedom”… nice Pictures both in b&w and color with great graphics. A nice item with some small minor separations at the fold lines.
Ken sure did put together a great array of items coupled with some serious East Coast attitude. If you didn’t already know what a nice guy he was … he had no problem telling you. Ken passed away about a decade ago. Wonderful items and descriptions! The catalogue is almost collectible as the items are! As typically happens .. a few of the pages are loose.
The earliest ship of the NCL fleet (commissioned in December of 1968) … she paved the way for their success and an eventual quartet of similar ships and beyond. Victor Borge was the honorary Commodore for the fledgling fleet and these early services. Great little item and not common to find!
Great little brochure deck plan from 1975 …. For the Monarch Sun. This ship had many different lives for many operators and finally went to the Alang breakers in the early 2000’s. Some of her interiors from her beginnings with Moore McCormack were still intact in 1975 under the name Monarch Sun.
Carnival had started with the Mardi Gras and quickly added the Carnivale and these 2 ships sailed at almost full capacity from their humble beginnings. A little seam separation but still a beauty!
Carnival had started with the Mardi Gras and quickly added the Carnivale … and finally added the Festival. These 3 second hand vessels laid the foundation for the current Carnival empire
The Independence and Constitution spent their golden years in the Hawaiian interisland trade and were joined briefly by the Liberte to serve Tahiti, Excellent brochure for the 86/87 season. The Connie sunk on her way to the breakers and the Indy barely made it to Alang and broke her back just short of the beach and was broken up on the spot. The Liberte also enjoyed a long career for multiple owners.
