The Cunard Queens PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

The Cunard Queens free pdf The venerable Queen Elizabeth 2 has long since become a floating legend. Launched in 1967, she was for three decades considered the last of her kind, a cherished and beloved remnant from the age of the great ocean liners. So Cunard's announcement, on the eve of the new Millennium, to build a new liner for the transatlantic service, caused widespread interest. The Queen Mary 2 would not have been a true Cunarder had she not embodied a number of superlatives and when she entered service in 2004 she was the longest, widest, highest and most expensive passenger ship ever built, at once a eulogy to maritime nostalgia and the embodiment of modern technology and design. To further build on the success of these two ships Cunard commissioned the Queen Victoria, launched in December 2007. Sporting the company's classic livery - black hull, white superstucture and red funnel - the ship will be employed exclusively for luxury cruises from her homeport of Southampton. With his fascinating mixture of maritime history and contemporary analysis, the author describes the history of the Cunard Line, the first years in service of the Queen Mary 2, the conception, building and maiden voyage of the Queen Victoria, before saying farewell to the QE2, which will retire to Dubai as a floating hotel in November 2009. This beautiful book is both a lavish tribute to the world's best-known shipping line and an intriguing examination of the world's most famous cruise liners.
