For some reason I just love the idea that a company still exists that is called, the 'Steam Packet Company'. It is so redolent of history (a bit like 'Carphone Warehouse' but infinitely more venerable.)
You are right- although it never really occurs to me. Actually it is, apparently, the 'oldest continuously operating passenger shipping company in the world', having been sailing backwards and forwards for 186 years!
