  • Description

    S.S. Arcadia, Mediterranean Cruise.

    L/S of people looking at shop window. C/U shot of hands of people as they look at different jewellery inside the shop. Several jewellery boxes lay open. High angle C/U shot of a lovely selection of items placed on the counter. M/S of a couple choosing. Cut to a hairdresser's salon. C/U shot of a girl's face as she has her hair done. C/U shot of the face of a hair stylist, working.

    This is not one of glossier parts of Mayfair but Mediterranean sea cruise aboard the liner S.S. Arcadia - voiceover tells the audience.

    Great panning C/U shot of fantastic looking buffet with chef putting the food on the plates and giving it to a waiter to take it away. M/S of four people (a family) sitting in the restaurant, being served by waiter. L/S of a large library (or reading room) with lots of books and comfortable sofas and armchairs. M/S of a young woman sitting on the sofa, reading her book.

    L/S of a boat on a wide, perfectly blue Mediterranean sea. L/S of people leaving ship to enjoy Naples. Several shots of sightseeing including great panoramic panning shots of the town. Cut to a L/S of the ship at sea. Several shots of the ship's sports activities - swimming pool looks too small and crowded for such a luxurious boat.

    L/S of crowd, mainly dancing couples is followed by the night shot of the ship at sea.
