STUDYING IN A FLOATING PARADISE
   The Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona announced an interesting and attractive trip: "the best summer holidays". For that purpose, they had an excellent ship, comfortable and even luxurious, which was unthinkable for many of the students engaged in the project. It is worth noting that, at that time, only a chosen few were able to afford a trip such as this. The travellers took group or couple pictures of themselves happily going to the dining room, or on the deck. The ship had it all: cabins, cigar rooms, music rooms, a swimming pool, or wide decks for relaxation. The cultural programme, which was designed to create a "floating university", was complemented by an excellent on-board dining, theme parties, concerts - both of classical music and Central American rhythms-, as well as sports events on deck, a swimming pool and hammocks to relax, contests and cinema projections...
 
   All these possibilities were announced with well and tastefully designed programmes, which paid meticulous attention to the aesthetic, typographical, and style. The good taste also applied to the passengers' outfits, which were always appropriate to the occasion: sports, gala evenings, city visits or shopping in a bazaar. This was not a minor issue: elegance in spirit and education had to be expressed in exquisite, respectful, and appropriate manners. It was a whole life, social and cultural programme.
