just a list of voyages with nothing to report apart from a few celebs, lots of pictures of the ship docking and leaving port, one interior picture, no description of the interior, finished it in 20 minutes, very disappointed.

This book has great photos , though only One actually taken inside the ship! BUT WHERE ARE THE PROMISED PLANS , as depicted in the add? This book IS à must have of you're planning on building thé United States. Yet without plans , it's not deserving a spécial mention.
