SS United States
Last Voyage: 1969
Status: Privately owned
Reason: Airlines became more popular
Welcome to this 5 part series on this magnificent ocean liner known as the SS United States. The sad and empty look of this once historical and well known ocean liner has been sitting in a state of decay for over 20 years. With its maiden voyage in 1952, it only lasted 17 years before airlines became the more popular way to travel overseas. Crystal cruise line was recently interested in bring this icon back to sea worthy but after thier 9 month inspection, they decided to back out of the deal. Currently in Philadelphia, I walked the massive 990 foot long vessel, with permission, to give you a more in depth look of what the SS united States looks like inside. This is a 4 part series with a bonus 5th part coming out later. Hope you enjoy the series and a much closer look inside of the SS United States.
