Almost everyone knows of the colorful cutaway brochure of the SS FRANCE, that's on Ebay right now: SS FRANCE CUTAWAY, was there one made like that for the NORWAY??

On my second (and last) cruise on the Norway in 1998 I went to the purser's information desk which was on Fifth Avenue (port promenade) just aft of the Windjammer bar. For some reason I had to go in the office behind the information desk. In that office on the wall was a framed cut-away of the Norway with the added decks. The perspective was from slightly above and slightly aft on the starboard side. I've never seen another copy and never been able to find out who produced it. I suspect it was produced about the time the decks were added. Anyone else ever see that cut-away? I'd like to find a copy, but one has never surfaced.

Thank you Jack, I wish I had known that was in there. I would have taken a few photos of it. I'm sure it has to be out there somewhere.

I wish I would have had my camera with me. I can't remember what the reason for my visit to the purser's info desk was but, whatever the reason, I didn't expect to need to take pictures. As I recall, I asked whoever I was dealing with about the cut-away and they had no idea where it came from, that it was unique, or where I could get a copy. Upon my return from that cruise, I called NCL and went through a number of layers of bureaucracy. I got to someone who worked in print advertisement. They actually sent me an ss Norway poster, which is great, but it is not a cut-away. The woman I spoke to had never seen a cut-away of the Norway and seemed fairly knowledgeable on the subject. Therefore, I believe the one I saw came from the shipyard or architect behind the added decks. I e-mailed Jan-Olav Storli, a former officer on the Norway who now hosts a web forum about the ship. I asked him about the cut-away also. He said he did not remember it, but he has extensive photos interior spaces. He was going to consult his photos and see if that cut-away appeared in any of his photos. Haven't heard back.

I posted that question on his website as well, if anyone will have the photos, I'm sure Jan will. He's a very nice fellow.

Way back in the day my brother was given a French magazine by his high school French Teacher, and the main article was about the then new SS France. As I recall there was a foldout section with a bow to stern cut away diagram of the ship.

It must be available somewhere, if you know someone in France maybe they could help. I would love to find it myself.

There were several magazines that featured extensive articles on the French liner when she was new. My grandfather had a few (that he saved for years) as he learned to speak fairly fluent French after he retired. The magazines were great practice. EBay at times will have a magazine w/a ss France article.

That famous fold-out cutaway of FRANCE is included in the book "FRANCE, Un Reve de Géant", by Claude Villers (1996.) A fantastic book, still available at Amazon.ca and Amazon.fr.

I have sort of a collection of cut-away liners and cruise ships going. I have the ss France and I'd really like to have the ss Norway in her final form. But commissioning a cut-away diagram costs between $80,000 and $120,000. I checked and was shocked it costs that much. I don't think I could sell enough copies on e-bay to cover that kind of investment.
