INDEPENDENCE & CONSTITUTION - 1960 deck plan booklet after the chop

Product Description

American Export Line:  A sixteen-page deck plan brochure for the INDEPENDENCE/CONSTITUTION twins from the June 1960.  This plan was issued right after a major retrofit that saw the ships' bridges cut off and moved forward 21 feet and up 8 feet to create space for 56 new First Class cabins.

There are several drawings of public rooms, but mainly this brochure shows detailed deck plans.  Eight decks are covered covering all three classes.  It takes a little searching to figure out the class separations but the trick is always to "follow the staircases".  By finding a public room and following the stairways you can usually pinpoint the outline of each class.  Interesting to compare this plan versus the American Hawaii Cruises plan from the 1990s.  Other than new cabins on the former Sports Deck, not much changed in fifty years.

Very good condition.
