Format: Paperback
I think the book covers a lot of ships and liners, but is very poor in description. It only states basic characteristics. I have to admit I expected more...

Glad these are available for low price--poor graphics, spotty rather than encyclopedic coverage of subject.. not worth much if anything..

If 1/3 of a page and one photo for each ship is enough info for you, this is an outstanding quick reference. I only wish the author had included a few significant ships of under 15,000 tons, and with the recent spate of very large new cruise ships, the book is slightly dated. A cross-reference list of sister ships might also have been welcome. No matter; this is still one of the most heavily-used books on my shelf.

(Note: this is a reprint of a review I first posted anonymously in 1999. Of course, it is now even more dated, and I wish that Dover and the author would merely issue a "Volume 2" which would cover the pertinent new ships since 1994.)
