Excellent brochure plan for the Homeric … Home Lines publicity department created these exceptional plans all throughout the 60’s and into the Mid 70’s for all ships in their fleet. The Homeric would catch fire before these cruises were completed though. Excellent Like New condition.
Simple (yet detailed) deck plans of the Franca C. In nice condition with a NY agency stamp.
Excellent copy of the 1975 season Oceanic deck-Brochure plan. Home Lines still put effort and money into these types of deck plan-folder brochures through the late 1970’s. lovely onboard photos of passengers in public areas, rooms and cabins. No Agency stamp.
Home Lines had printed this exceptional type of brochure /deck plan for many years and this one is a no disappointment. Full color photography and color-coded deck plans are the staples of these wonderful brochures. Like New condition … Unfortunately, this would become her last brochure before her galley and dining room caught fire and the decision was to scrap her and look for newer tonnage.
Advertised as her inaugural winter program of sailings from Florida … is this richly colored brochure for the lovely Homeric. Home Lines had printed this exceptional type of brochure /deck plan for many years … and this one is again no disappointment.

Certainly, one of the most common souvenirs for cruise ships in the 70’s and 80’s! I use these for all sorts of things at home.
Heavy silver-plated fish forks from one of the post WW2 liners. Stamped Italia and Broggi made. Fine quality and needs a good polish!
A great brochure …Tiny and petite but contains some nice photography and info on all 7 cruises!
Great little list for the little combo liner for a voyage beginning 11 December and completing almost 30 days later.
Nice deck plans for the Italia dated April 1958. She saw both Trans Atlantic and Cruise service for Home Lines. Good condition with color coding for both First and tourist classes. Per passenger capacity for crossings was 1287 … and cut by half+ to 600 for cruises.
Nice deck plans for the Italia dated May 1962. The Homeric did almost full time “Sunway cruises” throughout her career with Home Lines .. and was a good profit earner for the company. This plan is printed on heavier newsprint and is in very nice condition … the blue coloring is a little faded at the edges in places.
One of the last great true Italian liners .. the lovely Galileo Galilei. She and her sister Mariconi were stunningly beautiful and exceptionally decorated. The card is in great unused condition
