The Last Ocean Liners

North German Lloyd The West German flagship Bremen was rebuilt from the French troopship Pasteur, and introduced by Norddeutscher Lloyd on the North Atlantic run in July 1959 between New York, Cherbourg, Southampton (6 days) and Bremerhaven (7 days).

North German Lloyd She was billed as a "sea-going hotel" with endless amenities for a relaxed crossing. First class public rooms were high on Veranda deck, including an observation lounge, ballroom, library, card room and cocktail lounge which all reflected the calm elegance of a private club. The larger Tourist class extended most of the height and length of the ship, offering the cheer and warmth of a holiday resort.

"From chief steward to bell boy ... unobtrusive service is a byword on the Bremen. But the ship's company is warm and friendly and most important, always there when you want them."
