Probably 1933 leaving Southampton for New York. Is she the all time favourite of enthusiasts?

To answer the question--no. Even among the limited class of four stackers, still no. The less-cluttered decks and better proportions of Olympic suit me more. Where Aquitania gets my respect is her longevity, sailing to the breakers under her own steam. For that, I can forgive the bow that always looked one deck short and the sea of ventilators and old-fashioned davits.

Well we agree that the Olympic was a very fine looking ship. I'll try and dig out some pics.

I've always preferred Aquitania's looks to those of Olympic.
