Never Been on a Cruise?
The Hudson was like a grand stage, the liners a superb cast of characters!

The Fabulous Interiors of the Great Ocean Liners
"As a youngster growing up in the fifties on the Hoboken shore, just across the Hudson River from the docks of New York City, I was thoroughly fascinated with the comings and goings of the great liners. There were then over 60 different passenger ships using the port. The Hudson was like a grand stage, the liners a superb cast of characters. Almost every day had at least one inbound or departing liner. But if seeing these beautiful queens was exciting, going aboard was thrilling. It was like entering some magical world. A fresh and sudden spell took hold from the very moment that you crossed the gangway, stepping from the functional steel structure of one of those long, bleak piers into the warmth, vitality and sense of excitement of a ship's entrance foyer. It was a thrill, a joy, almost a delicious bewilderment. The experience on board is matchless!" William H. Miller, Jr. The Fabulous Interiors of the Great Ocean Liners
