In January 2004, Cunard Line's latest flagship, the stupendous Queen Mary 2, sailed on her maiden voyage from England. Not merely a cruise ship, this fourth Cunard Queen is a true ocean liner, able to cross the Atlantic in all weathers at high speed, sustaining the company's celebrated heritage. She is the most expensive, ambitious and largest passenger cruise ship of all time. The Queen Mary 2 book documents the creation of this remarkable vessel from keel laying to christening and features stunning four-colour photographs and paintings, details of design, construction, engines, lavish interiors, sea trails, and christening. It also contains archival images juxtaposing her significance against her predecessors. An eight-page gatefold shows a detailed cutaway of the remarkable interiors.
