The White Star Line’s Oceanic was the largest ship in the world in 1899 when she was launched as the company’s "Ship of the Century." She was the company’s last express liner prior to Olympic and Titanic, and her lavish first class accommodation became renowned among Atlantic travelers. Serving on the company’s express service for 15 years, she earned a reputation for running like clockwork.

This exceptionally researched and beautifully illustrated book explores her history and legacy.
