About This Book

By the 1970s it looked as if the QE2 would be the last of the great transatlantic liners. However, over three decades later the world watched in awe as Queen Mary 2, the largest, longest, widest and most expensive ocean liner ever to be constructed, set sail on her maiden voyage. Boasting beautiful lounges, dining rooms and the largest dance floor at sea, QM2 evokes the glamour of the golden age of travel. With over 200 never-before-published photographs of QM2, including her public rooms and accommodation as well as stunning exterior shots and behind-the-scenes insights, this book is delightfully complemented by little-known facts and fascinating information about this grand ship. In QM2: A Photographic Journey, the authors enthusiastically record the modern features and timeless elegance that makes the QM2 a true successor to the Cunard legacy. With a foreword by Commodore R.W. Warwick (QM2’s first master), insights from Commodore Bernard Warner into the running of the ship, and an afterword by Commodore Rynd, this book provides the reader with a perfect souvenir of the Cunard Line flagship.
