Trove Tuesday - Cruise Ship in Hobart

Today finds me in Hobart on board a a modern cruise ship, The Voyager of the Seas, learning about genealogy with over 240 other family history enthusiasts from the Unlock the Past crew .

Wondering what Trove could tell me about cruising on modern ships I entered the search term "modern cruise ship" into the newspapers search there and selected the following items to share. What a coincidence that the ship in these articles was also in Hobart.


1927 'BOWLING.', The Mercury (Hobart, Tas. : 1860 - 1954), 28 February, p. 5, viewed 7 February, 2013, http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-article29664661

As the text from 1927 is a bit fuzzy here is what it says:



LIKE AN HOTEL.                


This photograph shows portion of the writing-room of the Cunard- line s.s. Franconia, which is due at Honart on a world cruise today.
The Franconia is one of the most modern cruising ships in the world, and, is employed almost exclusively in that service.
