Cunard Line: From March 1977, a sixteen-page CUNARD PRINCESS Press Guide with five b &w publicity photos of Princess Grace attempting to christen the ship.
The guide features a page of fact and figures, description of the ship's concept, a tour of the vessel, several pages of technical information, and photos showing the Showboat Lounge, Meridian Dining Room, Lounge, Eight Bells Club, Clipper Suite, Shops, a luxury stateroom, a regular cabin, and the Swimming Pool. The back pages contains highlights of Cunard history and stats of the QUEEN MARY, QUEEN ELIZABETH, and QE2.
Tucked into the guide are five b &w publicity photos taken on March 30, 1977. On that day Princess Grace of Monaco christened the ship in New York Harbor. There's a wonderful photo of the Princess hoisting back the traditional bottle of champagne in preparation to hurl it against the hull. She looks very focused. In the next shot she is laughing as a Cunard dignitary attempts to grab the broken bottle as it flaps against the hull. Two more scenes are group shots with the princess and the final one shows her dancing onboard the ship.
All items are in very good condition.
