Perhaps no other ship in
the history of the Cunard Line was more revered than was
the RMS Aquitania.
Widely considered one of the most attractive ships of
her time, RMS Aquitania earned the nickname "Ship
Beautiful". Her greater length and wider beam
allowed for grander and more spacious public rooms.
Her exquisite and tastefully executed interiors earned
Aquitania the title “The Ship Beautiful.”
Aquitania held the record for the longest service career
of any 20th century express liner, carrying 1.2 million
passengers. She was the only major liner to
serve in both World Wars.
Aquitania was scrapped, as the last four funnelled
passenger ship, in 1950, in Scotland. Her wheel
and a detailed scale model may be seen in the Cunard
exhibit at the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic in

individual thin pieces of wood glued together, not

on Kauai. She looks beautiful. I am in the process
of unscrewing her from packing and can hardly wait
to see her in all her glory.
I am very grateful for your magnificent ship...
