Left Olympic Deck, walking/jogging track and row of lifeboats.
Right Distinctive funnel with "wings," dating back to about 1960 when the ship was originally built and launched as the S.S. France. "S.S.," by the way, stands for "Steam Ship." The ship now has four boilers, two active turbines, two propellers, averages 18 knots, and burns 200 tons of fuel oil per day at that speed.

Left Dining room waiters perform song and dance on the final night before reaching New York! This was a very impressive show to the theme "We Are The World."
Right Piano players Wayland Pickard and Dmitri Gaivoronski, part of the excellent evening entertainment onboard the S.S. Norway.

Left View looking forward over the bow; with the two tender boats visible.
Right View looking aft over the aft pool deck; wake of ship visible.
