Life at Sea gallery

Life at sea is very different to life on land. This gallery looks at life on board for seafarers and passengers. Discover how sea travel has changed, from the luxury of the 20th century liners, to the long, dangerous journeys of 300 years earlier, and today’s huge container ships.
