I can't think of a more fitting way to end this tribute than the wonderful video Adja posted of crossings on both SS Norway and SS Liberte. With the demise of our ship comes a last link to the regular transatlantic crossings of years past. Both of these ships were given new lives, and both helped inspire new generations of ships as well as ocean liner enthusiasts.
On behalf of the Cruise-Chat staff, I thank everyone who has contributed to this thread during its span of almost four years, 267 pages, more than five thousand replies, and (as of today) nearly 600 thousand views. It has truly been an honor and a pleasure to host such a wonderful and meaningful discussion.
Yet, this is not goodbye. Please join us in our new forum on classic liners and cruise ships
, an idea born out of this thread.
Happy cruising and smooth sailing,
and adieu SS Fance/SS Norway,
