The Great Ocean Liners (sometimes abbreviated as TGOL) is a non-commercial website, created by two Swedish ocean liner enthusiasts – Henrik & Daniel – in 1999. The idea came from the simple fact that, at the time, we thought that there were no comprehensive websites on the subject of ocean liners available. Over the first years, the site grew to include articles on more than 100 individual ships. Although our website has been virtually static and unchanged since 2005, we have finally updated the entire experience to bring it more in line with modern web standards. The articles on the site were written by us, with information compiled from various sources, printed as well as electronic.
