MILES COWSILL    Book Number: 86382    Product format: Hardback

Cunard's Golden Age occurred after WWII, when their ocean liners Queen Mary and Queen Elizabeth were the epitome of luxury ocean travel. With speeds of over 30 knots, these two sisters were the largest ocean liners in the world and the Queen Elizabeth held this record until eclipsed in 1996 by the Carnival Destiny. The new Queen Elizabeth was named in 2010 by Her Majesty the Queen and it recalls the rich heritage of the first Cunard to bear her name. Her elegance and modern features have won her many accolades and made her a firm favourite with her passengers. This rather glamorous book takes the reader through the development and building of the third Queen-class ship and uses over 170 photos, many colour, to offer this unique record. The world's leading cuisine, manufacture and steel making, the building, flood-lit at night, the distinctive Queen's Room, the sophisticated and intimate Princess Grill restaurant on Deck 2 midships, the magnificent Grand Ballroom whose artwork and murals reflect cherished royal links, the Royal Court Theatre featuring stunning musicals, the Grand Lobby, the grandeur of the Britannia restaurant, here are exquisite Art Deco styled wood intarsia panels, murals representing the gardens at Hampton Court and Balmoral Castle and photographs of the remarkable construction of these glamorous interiors. As she sails around the world, here are photographs of her arriving in ports worldwide. 96 large pages 23 x 16.7cm in landscape format.
