I just received a copy of the 50th Anniversary Voyage Edition of the SS United States and if you haven't read it, it is worth the time and money. As she only sailed a total of 17 years (less time than many sailing today), the major advantage she had actually led to her demise and that was US flagging. Chalk up another success story for the labor unions. With all asbestos and interior components removed, and being just 13 yrs since dry-docking for bottom painting, it would have to be cheaper to refit her for cruising over the cost of building a totally new ship. Lets hope NCL, or someone, really does have a plan. Carnival really should snatch this up for the Cunard division, better yet another fun-ship. Imagine the twin stacks with whale tails! LOL (Just kidding on that one)
