Additional Information: Original, linen-backed travel by Cunard Line cruise ship R.S.S. "Caronia" horizontal poster. This original poster is ready to frame. RMS Caronia was a 34,183 gross register tons (GRT) passenger ship of the Cunard Line (then Cunard White Star Line). She is credited as one of the first dual-purpose ships: suited to cruising, but also capable of transatlantic crossings. All public rooms were air-conditioned. Electric fans and heaters, and ventilation which can be regulated by the passenger, are features of every stateroom. A 300 seat cinema theater was available to both First Class and Cabin passengers. Caronia Cunard Ocean Liner Original Antique Vintage Travel Advertising Poster in excellent condition. Launched on 30 October 1947, she served with Cunard until 1967. She was nicknamed the "Green Goddess." With cruising in mind, the new ship - soon to be named Caronia by Princess Elizabeth - received many different features from her Cunard White Star fleetmates. An outdoor swimming pool was new, as was having a bathroom in every cabin. However, unlike modern cruise ships, her accommodation included two classes, the first and the cabin. The company decided to give her a different color scheme to distinguish her from Cunard White Star's liners. Instead of going for the usual all-white cruise ship look, Caronia received a unique livery in different shades of green, making her highly attractive and instantly recognizable. Another striking feature of the ship was her funnel, one of the largest ever installed aboard a ship. Printed in England This is an Original Lithograph Vintage Poster; it is not a reproduction.
