What she didn't think about is that the "research queen" in me would take over. I really enjoyed finding out about the ship and it's journeys over the years. I also learned a little bit about the artist that painted the tulips, found translations for the foods on the menu and the fact that the voyage on this date was from Genova, Italy to New York. I can only imagine the differences between this cruise and the cruises of today!
I've been saving this collage that I created from pictures of the menu to post today...57 years from the date that these adventurers sailed the seas and dined in such elegant surroundings. I hope they had a wonderful trip! I wonder if it was a trip for pleasure or if they were searching for a better life?
