I know this subject has probably been talked about a hundred times already, but what ship is your favorite and why? For me it would be the Queen Mary because of her character, her history and her looks inside and out.

Favorite ocean liner or cruise ship?
Im guessing ocean line based on where this thread is, so I would have to say Normandie, the looks, the speed, the legend, the tragedy..

For me the 1932 version of Canadian Pacifics Empress Of Britain, largest liner they ever owned, and I lliked the looks of it inside and out.

I have more favorit ships.
But this is my favorit all time ship. Holland Amerika Lijn tss. Statendam 3 of 1929. The last of the edwardian liners and the most perfect ship of this time period.

Greetings Ben.

As is probably obvious from my screen name, the French Line's S.S. Normandie. She was the absolute pinnacle of art deco splendor inside and out.

Of course as you can tell by my screen I am into the classic tranatlantic liners. Especially the greyhounds from the early 1930's - to the era's end at the close of the 1960's
My #1 Favorite is Normandie.
Folowed closeley by the Cunard sisters Mary and Elizabeth.
But I also need to throw Bremen, Europa, Rex, Italia, Nieuw Amsterdam, United States, and France into the favorites mix some where as well.

Onno

I think that my first question was is there some predisposition to being gay and liking Ocean Liners?
