The French Line
There would be no Mission Hill Family Estate without the French Line. Our Proprietor’s family emigrated to Canada on the French Line’s luxury liner SS Champlain. French Line ships were known to be the best, the best food, the best wine and the best ambiance.
The legendary Cunard line was in competition with the French Line for most of the 1930s with their gigantic ‘Queen’ liners. Cunard used the tagline ‘Getting There is Half the Fun’ to promote their great food, entertainment, and high-living shipboard atmosphere.
Many do not realize that at one time the Canadian Pacific company was the world’s greatest travel system with a fleet of steamships, luxury hotels, transcontinental railways, airlines, and communications. Canadian Pacific offered a shipboard experience on par with the best in the world.
