1. Oceanic (1965)
Although designed as a transatlantic liner, Oceanic (1965) was immediately placed into cruise service due to rapidly increasing airline competition on the North Atlantic. For many years, she followed a New York-Nassau route in the summer and sailed throughout the Caribbean in the winter. She was the first passenger ship equipped with a “magrodome” to cover an outdoor pool in inclement weather. Ocean liners subsequently equipped with magrodomes include Queen Elizabeth 2 and Queen Mary 2.
