BRITTANY: 1952 - Large cruise brochure w/ plans & interiors from 1962

Product Description
Chandris Lines/ Caribbean Cruise Lines: Here's a rare brochure - a large (22" by 34") fold-out promoting the S.S. BRITTANY's Bermuda and Nassau cruises out of New York during the summer of 1962.

Color photos show the Swimming Pool, Orchid Room, Grand Salon, Continental Dining Room, and a wood-veneered stateroom. A portrait shows off the BRITTANY's cheerful lines. Rates started at just $175 for a seven day cruise and an itinerary shows nine cruises beginning in July 1962.

Large plans show eight decks in color-coded detail. A starboard profile shows deck locations.

The ship was built after WW2 as Transports Maritimes' BRETAGNE. Chandris bought her in 1961 and converted the liner into the very first Chandris (and by default Celebrity) cruise ship. Caribbean Cruise Lines, the outfit who issued this brochure, leased her for $6,500 a day and ran a very successful service.

Chandris and Caribbean Cruise Lines were happy with the arrangement and the ship was scheduled to return to New York in June 1963. Alas, a welder's torch set the ship ablaze on April 8th and the fire consumed the entire ship. This devastating setback meant that Chandris was not able reenter the American cruise market until 1968 with the newly introduced AMERIKANIS.

Very good condition.
