    DescriptionFirst published almost 50 years ago, Ocean Ships has become the bible for maritime enthusiasts, providing authoritative and detailed information on all the world's ocean-going passenger and cargo ships. The total number of ships in the last edition (published in 2009) was over 5,000 and such has been the boom in ship building in recent years, with the growth in the international cruise business as well as the amount of cargo that needs to be shipped around the world, that the total of new ships has grown substantially while many older ships are being scrapped. Ships listed in the new edition range from the greatest names in the cruise business such as Cunard's Queen Mary 2 and the Queen Victoria, to the multitude of unglamorous workhorses of the seas - tankers, container ships and cargo vessels owned by companies across the globe. One of the most interesting aspects of the boom in the cruising industry is the size of the newest liners that have entered service. Amongst the monsters that will be incorporated into this fully updated volume will be The Allure of the Seas (Royal Caribbean Line; 225,000 tons), Azura (P&O Cruises; 116,000 tons), Carnival Dream (Carnival Cruise Lines; 130,000 tons), Celebrity Eclipse (Celebrity Cruises; 122,000 tons) and Disney Dream (Disney Cruise Line; 128,000 tons). This edition is fully revised, with entries organised by shipping company with a listing of each ship owned by the company giving details of company colours, national flag, year built, tonnage, dimensions, speed, engines, number of passengers, type and former names, supplemented with a photographic section of around 200 new photographs.
