Long before supersonic aircraft could take passengers from the bright lights of New York to the bustling streets of London in less than an average workday, the only mode of transatlantic transport was via ship. This documentary from National Geographic and Columbia TriStar Home Entertainment sails back to a time when "superliners" cruised the Atlantic Ocean with regal grace. This 59-minute journey takes the viewer aboard some of the more famous luxury liners from a bygone era, including the Queen Elizabeth II, the Normandy, and the United States. Sentimental interviews from passengers and crew members complete the voyage.
