STELLA POLARIS: 1927 - Deluxe 1969 brochure w/ color interiors & deck plans

Product Description

Clipper Line: A deluxe brochure from 1969 promoting what ended up to be the STELLA POLARIS' final season.

By the late 1960s, this magnificent ship was having a hard time meeting new SOLAS standards and staying profitable. The Clipper Line first announced there would be no 1969 season but then changed their minds. So here is the final STELLA POLARIS brochure - a beautiful twenty-page effort with gold trimmed covers protected by a clear plastic slipcover.

Inside is a letter from the company president explaining why the ship is back in service, and color photos of the ship's interiors. Some of the decor is decidedly 1960s but behind the walnut and rayon are the original designs. Also included are itineraries, rates, and route maps.

An inserted plan shows five decks. All the smallish cabins of the past are gone, replaced with large staterooms and suites with private baths.

The cruises end in September 1969, and by the end of October the ship was sold to become a floating hotel in Japan. After sailing the world's oceans for forty-two years, this deluxe brochure is a fitting final tribute to the old gal. Too bad that a 2006 effort to stabilize the faded vessel and tow her back to Sweden for restoration ended up with the ship sinking within hours of leaving the dock. Today the STELLA POLARIS rests upright on a sandy bottom, seventy meters under the sea.

Excellent condition.
