Oceanic was the largest ship in the world when she was launched in 1899. The White Star Line’s “Ship of the Century”, she was their last express liner before Olympic and Titanic, and her lavish first-class accommodation became renowned among Atlantic Travellers. Serving on the company’s express service for fifteen years, she earned a reputation for running like clockwork.
This new book published by History Press and written by Mark Chirnside is the first to look at the entire career of Oceanic. With human anecdotes, hitherto unpublished material and rare illustrations, it is beautiful tribute to a unique ocean liner.
