They always belonged to the finest ships on the seas.
Like The SS France
She had her maiden voyage in 1912, few days after the Titanic sunk.
Her interior was absolute awesome
Another one build in the 1930th was the SS Normandie. This ship was the largest, fastest and most stylish ocean liner in its day
The entire style was art deco
Beside those classic liners France still leads today with the best liners on the seas
The ships of Ponant for example are a class for their own
Its interesting that all great Nations have something like this. The UK, France, Germany, even Italy but Russia never had a culture of such things.
