        32: The original two-level gift shop "Upstairs at The Downstairs' was originally 'Le Club Atlantique', the only bar-lounge that was open to both First-Class and Tourist Class passengers.

        (The cinema, later the Saga Theater was open to First Class in the balcony and Tourist Class on the deck below.)

          33: The signal or call letters used for identification, especially in radio transmissions, for the France/Norway changed over the years.

          From 1962-1979 they were FNRR
          From 1979-1987 they were LITA
          From 1987 they were NCLE-X
          And from 1987 up until its last days as the Norway C6CM7

          The official number also changed from 3077 as the France in the years 1962 to 1979 to 710763 what it should be now.
