Cunard's Modern Queens - A Celebration

2008 was a magical year for Cunard. For the first time, the line had three Queens in service: Queen Elizabeth 2, Queen Mary 2 and Queen Victoria. Queen Elizabeth 2 retired during the year, sailing for Dubai on 11 November, while Queen Mary 2 had reached her fifth anniversary as the largest ocean liner afloat and Queen Victoria entered service.

On 13 January 2008, all three liners were together for the first and last time in New York. After a successful first world cruise for Queen Victoria and Queen Elizabeth 2's twenty-sixth and final world cruise, all three ships rendez-voused in Southampton on 22 April for the last meeting of these three Queens.

Bowing out after a successful farewell season that saw her sail full on every voyage of the year, QE2 left Southampton amid the biggest fireworks display seen in the port since the advent of Queen Mary 2 five years earlier. In October 2010, Cunard once again had a third Queen in service, with the new Queen Elizabeth, built in Italy and named by Her Majesty the Queen at Southampton.
No other ships envoke the magic that Cunard's Queens have done since Queen Mary entered service in May 1936. Since then, a Cunard Queen has reigned the ocean wave. William H. Miller brings together a fantastic selection of images, with informative text, telling the story of Cunard's legendary modern Queens.

QM2: A Photographic Journey

By the 1970s it looked as if QE2 would be the last of the great transatlantic ocean liners. However, over three decades later the world watched in awe as Queen Mary 2, the largest, longest, grandest and most expensive ocean liner ever to be constructed, set sail on her maiden voyage in 2004.
With 14 decks and beautiful lounges, dining rooms and a ballroom, QM2 evokes the glamour of the golden age of ocean travel.

"QM2: A Photographic Journey" allows the reader to experience this unique vessel from the comfort of their own home, with numerous photographs of each of QM2's public rooms as well as stunning exterior shots and behind the scenes access.
This revised edition has been extensively updated to reflect the 2016 refit, with many new photographs from around the ship.

Queen Elizabeth - Elegance at Sea / Noble Eleganz zur See

Der Name "Queen Elizabeth" lässt die Herzen von Schiffsliebhabern auf der ganzen Welt höherschlagen. Zweimal bereits trugen Schiffe der Reederei Cunard Line diesen Namen. Beide waren Ozeanliner mit einer aussergewöhnlich schönen Linienführung: der Inbegriff von Eleganz. Die Queen Elizabeth, ist nach der Queen Mary 2 der zweitgrösste jemals gebaute Ozeanriese der britischen Traditionsreederei Cunard.

Reich illustriert durch beeindruckende Bilder beschreibt das Buch ausführlich Bau, Taufe, Ausstattung und Ambiente des neuen Luxusliners. Als Insider konnte der Autor Ingo Thiel hinter die Kulissen sowie unter Deck der Queen Elizabeth schauen und mit der Besatzung sprechen. Dabei herausgekommen ist ein Buch, das nicht nur den neuen Luxusliner ausführlich vorstellt, sondern beispielhaft das Leben und die Arbeit auf einem modernen Kreuzfahrtschiff schildert.
In diesem Buch werden nicht nur tiefe Einblick in das Leben an Bord mit Reportagen über ausgewählte Abteilungen sowie Porträts der an Bord arbeitenden Menschen geboten, sondern auch ein historischer Abriss zu den Anfängen der Traditionsreederei durch den Gründer Samuel Cunard und zur Geschichte der Vorgängerinnen.

Queen Victoria: A Photographic Journey

Queen Victoria was the first in a new breed of Cunard Ships: her design is enhanced to give her the ability to cross the North Atlantic. Introduced to service in 2007, Queen Victoria's reign is young; however, she has had a notable career with royal engagements, tandem Atlantic crossings and Gala-World Cruises where she has been welcomed with open arms.

Illustrated with stunning colour photographs taken by the authors from every area of the ship, and fully updated after the extensive 2017 refit, this new edition provides a lasting memento of a voyage aboard Cunard's stately monarch.
