"QE2: A Photographic Journey" takes the reader on a voyage of appreciation of the best-known and most-loved ocean liner. Readers can stroll the decks, visit the various bars and lounges, take high tea in the Grand Lounge and retire to their cabin without leaving their armchair. Each public room is featured with color photographs and historical commentary, including little-known anecdotes and snippets, and the book is complemented by new information from Commodore R.W. Warwick, former master of QE2 and the son of the first captain, about his time on board. In November 2008 QE2 finally retires to a new life in Dubai World, where she will become a hotel from February 2009, and the last chapter of her exceptional life in service will close. This affectionate record provides the most fitting of souvenirs.

As you turn the pages, it soon becomes clear that the photographs have been taken at a thoughtful walking pace. This allows plenty of time for you to discover exactly why Queen Elizabeth 2 has been recognised as 'the most famous and finest ocean-going liner in the world'
'The QE2 - A Photographic Journey' should attract a wide ranging readership - fulfilling QE2's strong need to be remembered. The authors have gone to considerable lengths to make sure that this can happen.
The sense of exploration is well conveyed - QE2's engines, Bridge and other places, usually out of bounds, these are here for all to see. A well written narrative that complements the pictures; together with the detailing of QE2's history, and important contributions by those who also hold QE2 in great affection - these add up to making the book an impressive reflection of the ship. QE2 - simply the best!
All in all a Great snapshot of one of the most iconic ocean liners of the modern era.
