Cruise History: By the mid 1960s, when jets had killed off all but the stragglers on the North Atlantic, Home Lines introduced the OCEANIC.
Once it was late enough for people to have forgotten the initial intention for the ship to work as a two class liner between Italy and Canada in the summer and cruise as a one-class ship from New York for the remainder of the year, Home Lines proudly proclaimed that their 39,000 tonner was “the largest ship built exclusively for cruising.”
