The crew in the backstage of the show. These images and other reports show how much the atmosphere aboard, and among  the crew members, was different than on the modern cruise ships, where the crews are mostly composed by underpaid people, coming from poor Countries, and low-qualified. Instead, all the crews of the Italian Line were composed by Italian personnel. (Photo from Antonio Borriello, Torre del Greco – Naples, Italy)
