Take a leaf from the book of travelers past, when getting there was half the fun, and an ocean liner was, in the words of shipping historian John Maxtone Graham, "the only way to cross". There is an aura of romance and nostalgia on an ocean voyage, harking back to the days when passenger ships vied for the coveted Blue Riband, granted to the fastest vessel to cross the North Atlantic. It's perfect for blue water sailors who value their time at sea, and for all those who want to savor unscheduled hours, with no need to rush.
