    The liner France is a former transatlantic liner built at the Chantiers de l'Atlantique, in Saint-Nazaire,


    It was launched on May 11, 1960 in the presence of General de Gaulle. 316 meters long, it remained until the launch of the Queen Mary 2, the largest boat (passenger ship) ever built in the world. A symbol of the prestige of Gaullist France and the Trentes Glorieuses, it was nicknamed "Normandy's little brother", a liner which disappeared prematurely in 1941 during a fire in New York.


    France's home port is Le Havre. It is operated by the Compagnie Générale Transatlantique (CGT). Luxuriously furnished, the liner was decorated by several painters from the School of Paris, notably by Louis Vuillermoz.


    For twelve years, she provided transatlantic crossings and a few cruises around the world, until September 1974.


    The successive oil shocks precipitated its disarmament due to non-profitability, even though President Valérie Giscard D'Estain had pledged, during his election campaign, to keep it in service.

    First sold to the Saudi businessman Akram Ojjeh in 1977, then to a Norwegian shipowner in 1979, the France was renamed "Norway".


    It then ensures, after several transformations (sometimes not very aesthetic but functional), cruises in the Caribbean Sea.


    Sold to a scrap dealer, she was renamed Blue Lady in 2006 and her dismantling ended in 2009 in India, on the Alang shipyard.
