The 1930s was perhaps the most glamorous and exciting decade for the great liners, highlighted by ferocious international shipbuilding rivalry: Germany s Bremen and Europa, Italy s Rex and Conte Di Savoia, France s Normandie and Britain s Queen Mary and Queen Elizabeth. Passengers travelled on some of the most popular liners of all time, such as L Atlantique, Empress of Britain, Empress of Japan, Queen of Bermuda, President Coolidge, Strathnaver and Strathaird, Orion, Capetown Castle, Oranje, Mauretania, Andes, and many more. Despite the worldwide Depression and a great shift in trading patterns, it was a wonderful decade for shipbuilding and the era of art deco on the high seas the age of floating Ginger Rogers .
