Still fail. Nobody is likely to take care of the United States anymore. They'll just let her sink to a watery grave. And QE2 (not QEII) is not the last of the great passenger liners. Classic one yes, maybe, but there's RMS Queen Mary 2.

The S.S. United States is neither forgotten nor is she rusting away.In 2007 the ship was given "an extensive technical review" by her present owners, Norwegian Cruise Lines, and was found to be in fine shape. No one is expecting NCL to revive United States as a trans-Atlantic passenger liner...those days are over, probably forever. But she might be revived as a cruise liner, or a dock-side hotel. That's what's going to happen to QE II, the last of the great passenger liners, when she retires from regular service next month. The U.S. has had no active battleships in her fleet since the Missouri (The Mighty Mo ) was de-commissioned in 1992.

Fail indeed. USA has never been able to take proper care of ocean liners. Look at their once pride and joy, the United States, all forgotten, rusting away. If it was a battleship it would be in pristine condition!

The Normandie was berthed at pier 88 to be fitted out as a troop ship, this next to the Cunard's pier.

I think that is during WW2 when one of the French Liners was being converted to a troopship, caught fire and the influx of water capsized it
