    Thank you so much for continuing the story of this once great liner.

                          Nice videos when I turned my speakers off. I could do without the psychedelic 60's music/sounds.

                            We, as a forum are now seriously LOOSING the battle to online groups on facebook.... with these threads and forums now being too difficult, obsolete and "yesterday"... most posts and images in any category are now shared on FB. Especially, after FB opened for all kinds of groups to be made...

                            Here is a video I found on FB.. in an ocean liner group:

                              Perhaps i am not searching facebook correctly, but i have just searched facebook for both the S.S Normandie, and the S.S Norway, the first search only produced one page for the Normandie, and that was nothing more than a link to the Wiki page about her, and the second search found no pages regarding the S.S Norway. And that covered all pages, be it people, groups or pages.

                              And thinking about it, when searching the web via google for information regarding various ships, i do not think i have ever been directed to a facebook based group. But a fantastic looking forum called CVF keeps popping up in google search results! I don't think we need be worried about facebook.
