of Britain
Even at anchor, tremendous as she is, the
Empress "Britain seems an emblem, like the
Winged Victory, of superlative grace and
speed. Yet it is her spaciousness that you
think of when her perfectly proportioned hull
looms up before you. These proportions, even
in these days of giant liners, are truly Olympian ... the gross tonnage of 42,500 accounts in part for the vastness of this ship of
"space" ... a magnificent length of 758 feet,
a beam of 97 feet, are astutely utilized in unbroken deck spaces and immense public rooms.
The magic of experienced management transports this great ship around the world, maintaining her high standards of luxury in the most
distant coiners of the world, and cruise life is
a sojourn of effortless ease, in surroundings
of absolute comfort comparable to the most
exquisitely managed home . . . and it IS a
home on the renowned "SEVEN SEAS STREET".
