The narrative includes the rise and decline of the British excursion fleets, with separate chapters dealing with paddle steamers of different eras, turbine steamers, steam reciprocating engines and motor ships. All the larger excursion ships of the 20th century are described in detail and the more important units, either by engineering design, by reputation (or notoriety), are dealt with in depth.
