      Great images of a great vessel... great that we continue this wonderful thread here.

      One question about something I had never noticed though: in the 'Trolland' (on the Norway), not sure what the play room for kids was called on the France, there is a small window with some kind of .... (what's the word I'm looking for... ) door on the forward bulkhead: was that a small window where they showed the kids puppet-theater? Was it also like that during the Norway-days?

      Strange how some details hae escaped my mind...

        Trolland SS NORWAY

        Yes I do remember the playroom for kids, Trolland. Was in there once and did some repair on the tiny tiny handwash for the kids , and also there was a tiny tiny toiletbowl, it was allmade for these small kids, Remember also all painting on walls, also a figure of NORWAy on the wall.

          It was also called Trolland on the SS FRANCE, also mentioned as the "New Noahs Arch" in the 303 book.

          Here is more of our special ship. Looking aft.

            Look at that special dinner setting in the courtyard... open skies and friends around a table: the light looks stunning.

                I would certainly love to one day see the construction of a near identical twin sister of the SS France, named either Ill De France or France IV. However, the ship's interior could more than exceed both the SS France and the TS Michaelangelo. In addition, the ship's cabins could be all First Class luxury suites, all the way in the 1960's decour. If I was in a position to build only one oceanliner, a twin sister to the SS France would be it. Considering that the French Line had wanted to build two smaller twin sister vessels, the new vessel would only be a part of a two larger versions of the planned twins that was never realized, with the SS France III(1962) being the first.

                Does anyone like this idea of the French Line having a twin sister of the SS France? It could still happen someday. The Norway maybe gone, but it's successor would one day come out of nowhere and shock the world once again. And that ship would sail the seven seas before joining in the ranks of the SS Rotterdam as a Hotel ship in France. At least that's my personal dream.

                    It is much better to see the birth of this ship, than the horrible pictures from Alang.

                    Thank you for keeping good memories alive.

                          Yeapp... working fine now. Ohhh.... those were the years. Amazing to see those photos from so long ago. I would even go as far as to say that they are somewhat rare as I had never seen them before.

                          Look at the images and allow yourself to dream: what if these images were new, what if these images were taken a few days ago? How wonderful would that have been?

                          Fascinating to see the image after her launch, floating at the fit-out berth awaiting the installation of her identity: the twin funnels.

                            Yes, and the best funnels ever put on an ocean liner. How majestic to see them as form followed function! What a presence!

                              This photo also fit in the Moonlight Serenade tread. It would have been my favorite there.
