Having an insatiable spirit of adventure and also a highly inquisitive mind most of Christian’s trips were for a distinct purpose rather than just lying hedonistically on a deckchair in the sun.
Sometimes she followed the routes of old seafaring explorers, other times visited sites of botanical interest (being a distinguished plantswoman), and on occasions just gone to see friends in far flung corners of the world.
Cruising Along captures the very essence of ship-board life on all sorts of vessels—from the very large liners to the small troop ships—with destinations as varied as Singapore, New Zealand, Chile and New York, to name but a few.
Each cruise has its own particular character and Christian has the ability to observe and comment on the individual ship and to remark, often with wry humour, on her fellow passengers as well as the crew. She puts places and people into historical context and records the changing face of sea cruises over eighty or so years.
