With the growing economic position of the UK and Europe, new cruise ships are now being built especially for these markets, but for many years they made do with second hand ships, usually from the US market.
This book was especially enjoyable for me fo two reasons. First, I now have a better understanding of how the UK cruise market operated and grew, usually via charter operators and packaged air sea vacations. My favorite part was the authors' giving concise histories of all the ships that operated in the UK market. I learned a lot about the afterlives of ships I once knew in the US market. Over the years I have encountered familiar looking ships with new names in the Mediterranean and Caribbean, even Alaska.. Some were easily recognizeable, others like the former RCCL ships were altered in major ways. This book is a great reference source when someone asks "Where is that ship now."
