EMPRESS OF CANADA: 1961 - Death and Birth of shipping empires 1972

Product Description

Canadian Pacific: The death, and birth, of shipping empires.

In 1971 Canadian Pacific issued this fold-out (24" by 27") brochure for EMPRESS OF CANADA cruises from December 1971 through April 1972. There are several nice ship photos, itineraries and rates, plus plans showing six decks. I don't think any of these cruises took place.

By the early 1970s the once vast Canadian Pacific ocean-going passenger fleet was down to just the EMPRESS OF CANADA. Even then the company was losing money. In November of 1971 this final EMPRESS was withdrawn from service and all cruises canceled.

But the eleven-year-old ship didn't sit idle for long. She was immediately snapped up by a newly created little company that put the former EMPRESS into cruise service from Miami. This start-up was short of both funds and time.

The ship left on her first cruise on March 11, 1972, and promptly ran aground on a Florida reef.  It was not a harbinger of things to come and soon the liner was again underway. Workmen and the office staff labored on renovations during that first cruise. In an effort to save money, Canadian Pacific's new funnel logo was modified slightly and switched from green and white to red, white, and blue. What havoc! But in the end it worked. The renamed MARDI GRAS was a hit and Carnival Cruises Lines was launched.

Good condition with some separation at the folds.
