Launched in 1929, the Japanese liner Hikawamaru represented ocean travel at its most luxurious. The "Queen of the Pacific" was as famous for her exquisite art deco interiors and four-star cuisine as she was for celebrity passengers like Charlie Chaplin. During WWII the Hikawamaru served as a hospital ship. By 1961, she had become a floating museum ship. She was fully restored to her former glory in 2007.
