Due to Congress passing an act curtailing immigrants from certain countries, shipping lines found they were losing their most profitable passengers. They had to repurpose their immigrant spaces to appeal to leisure travellers of modest means.
Many shipping companies started to charter their ships to cruise agents. Cunard advertised 12 day sailingsfrom New York to South America. Other destinations included Bermuda, the Mediterranean and the Caribbean. Edwardian design gave way to clean modern art deco lines with more ameneties, as could be seen on the Queen Mary and Normandie.
