Cruise Books

Abbot’s crew published four cruise books between 1945 and 1960, reproduced here as PDF files. Because of its large amount of text, the World War II book is also available as a series of searchable web pages.

The later three books are more like photo albums, with many images unidentified. No books were issued for the 1952 or 1956 Mediterranean cruises, but many color photos of the 1956 cruise are available.
