Flying the Red, White & Blue: Noted
American Passenger Liners
Following the Second World War, America re-entered the commercial passenger ship trades and with a fine, well remembered fleet of passenger ships — from super liners to smaller passenger-cargo combination types. They sailed trans-Atlantic and trans-Pacific, to South America, Australia and even to South & East Africa. We see the likes of the record-breaking United States , the popular Independence & Constitution and also look at the fine ships sailing under the houseflags of the likes of the Moore McCormack Lines, Grace Line, American President Line and the Matson Line. Now long gone and belonging to maritime history, these ships are worthy of a nostalgic remembrance.
