10 Vintage Photos of Travel by Boat
Back when the pace of daily life was slower and flights weren’t an option, people traveled by ship when they wanted to get away. While cruise ships are as popular as ever, the glamorous journey by sea doesn’t really exist anymore (although a few companies, including Cunard, are trying to revive the golden era). Most cruises have traded glamour for endless onboard activities—today, some ships have planetariums, skydiving simulators, and even onboard water parks. Here are 10 vintage photos of travel by ship that may make you consider booking a trip on Cunard’s Queen Mary 2.
