The Peninsular & Occidental Steamship Company was formed in 1900 and could, perhaps, be described as one of the seed pearls of the now massive Florida based cruise industry although the company ceased to trade in 1967 after the Cuban Revolution.  This talk looks at the ships it employed and some of the famous passengers carried which include Ernest Hemingway.
