Full Description:

A lavish tribute to the world's best-known shipping line, this beautifully illustrated book takes an intriguing look at three famous cruise liners: The legendary Queen Elizabeth 2, which, when launched in 1967, was considered the last of the great ocean liners; Queen Mary, which entered service in 2004 as the largest and most expensive passenger ship ever built; and Queen Victoria, launched in December 2007 for exclusive cruises out of Southampton. With an entertaining mixture of maritime history and contemporary analysis, the author tells the story of Queen Elizabeth 2, the Queen Mary 2's first years, and the conception, building, and maiden voyage of Queen Victoria. The book's publication coincides with the retirement of the Queen Elizabeth 2 to Dubai, where it will serve as a floating hotel.

Nils Schwerdtner, the author of three books on maritime subjects, regularly lectures on passenger liners. He lives in Hamburg, Germany.
