    Have you ever concluded a cruise vacation and realize that you had forgotten to take photographs of several areas that were important to you? Or wished you had photographs of some behind-the-scenes spots that are off-limits to passengers? This was the case for me after my 2001 cruise on SS Norway, the former SS France of 1962 and NCL’s flagship through the 1980s and 1990s. Thankfully, I now have Mr. Scott’s new book to fill in the gap. And, it is a superb collection of nearly 60 photographs of the ship in the early 2000s, when Mr. Scott was the official on-board historian. Thus, these photographs are presented through the eyes of a knowledgeable ocean liner historian and are accompanied by text that both educates and provides professional insight. Although the photographs were taken late in the ship’s career, Mr. Scott captures many areas that exude historical significance, such as original artwork, cabin fittings, and even the switchboard! In full disclosure, I have known Mr. Scott... More > since meeting him onboard SS Norway ten years ago. Even so, I do not believe that this influenced my enjoyment of the photographs or descriptions. Admittedly, the price of the book seems high for its length (approximately US$25 for 25 pages), yet this is one of those situations in which the product is well worth it. I highly recommend this book, available through the publisher, to those who have traveled onboard SS Norway or SS France, those who have an interest in liner and cruise ship history, and anyone who is curious as to why this ship endures in the hearts of so many.

    This is a must-have for fans of the great liners, especially, of course, the France (S/S Norway). Scott spent a great deal of time working and traveling aboard this great ship, and he knew more about what made her tick than most folks around. His language is easy-going and fun, and the secrets of the Norway's past are just waiting to be unlocked. If you never sailed on the Norway, it is fun to learn about the things that made ships great in the "golden days", and I'd say you've missed a great opportunity. If you did have the good fortune to sail on Norway, then this book will bring back those special memories, and I'll bet you'll find things in here that you didn't know about the ship when you were aboard. Thanks to D. Scott for putting this together in memory of a great ship!
