Although APL no longer offers passenger service, it is now involved in container shipping around the world. The company’s rich history of luxuriously slow voyages gives us pause, it gives us the opportunity to wonder how it must have been to see the world from a deckchair on a steamer, book in hand, pleasantly out of reach.
It was in the mid 1950's that APL spent $200,000,000 on a modernization program to upgrade to a new fleet of Passenger-Cargo ships from their fleet of basic cargo ships. These renovated cargo ships became the largest combination cargo-passenger ships ever placed in operation. The passenger accommodations on board would easily rival any of the latest cruise ships sailing today in the twenty-first century.
