The Golden Age of Cruising

Recommended Posts

Incredible beauty of a ship. Nothing like that around today. I wonder if she hadn't burned and sunk would she still be around.

But that wasn't really the Golden Age of cruising.  It was the golden age of crossing.  First class passengers had all the glory, but unlike the great unwashed of us who book inside cabins today, the two lower classes didn't eat the same food in the same places.  It wasn't even a budget cruise life.  EM

A little bit of a math challenge here.  They say 848 of 1952 pax were first class and call it a majority.  I think Daily Mail needs to go back to grade school.

A big part of the glamour of the "golden era" were the actual passengers who dressed the part and behaved accordingly. Today, you cant even get some people to wear a collared shirt to the MDR on formal night. I wonder if they had chair hogs on the Normandie.
