“WHEN the Savannah made her epic crossing of the Atlantic, she was hailed as the ultimate in steam powered vessels. Yet such succeeding queens of the sea as the Great Eastern, the St. Louis and the Deutschland reigned under the similar popular belief that the limits of size, speed, luxury and safety in ocean liners had finally been reached. Today, even while the magnificent Normandie is ushering in another epoch in ocean transportation, her alert owners are giving thought to tomorrows needs and problems.”
