For those interested in old liners, an in-depth feature covers the unusual story of two cargo ships rebuilt into the liners Mariposa and Monterey for Matson.

We remember the famous Cunard liner RMS Queen Elizabeth, which was launched almost 80 years ago and is the subject of a new World of Ships book.

Roy Fenton looks at some UK shipowners, whose ambition in building big ships outgrew their home port’s facilities.

A detailed profile of the Port of Los Angeles, which handles everything from container ships to cruise liners, looks at the port’s history, development and current operations

John Robinson’s outstanding photographs of shipping using the port of Rotterdam at night show a different side to the famous port.

Malcolm Cranfield looks at the wider shipowning operations of the Michalos family, which operated many classic cargo ships.

Captain Hilmar Snorrason of Iceland’s rescue service ICE-SAR talks about his career in the Icelandic merchant navy and his ship Sæbjörg, an old ferry now used for training.
