This is the story of the Queen Mary’s final voyage from Southampton to Long Beach, California.

After 31 years in operation on the North Atlantic routes for Cunard, the famous liner was sold

in 1967. The Clydeside-built ship has now been a floating hotel in America longer than she was

in active service. Following her sale she embarked on an epic final voyage from the UK via Cape

Horn to Long Beach which is described by Captain Treasure Jones, his crew and passengers, as

the Queen Mary journeyed into new waters that she had never sailed in as a commercial liner.

This book also includes a brief history of the vessel, including her part in the Second World

War, and features over 200 photographs and interesting archive material and memorabilia, much

of it not previously published. Edited by Richard Tennant, Michael Gallagher and Miles Cowsill.

  1. It is literally the best book about the ship I’ve ever seen & beautifully presented.
    It is superb & a great tribute to her & to John.
    So many good memories have come flooding back.
    My painting looks perfect too.

  2. Rated 5 out of 5

    A really splendid book; 9.5/10.

    Good points:- excellent variety of views; terrific pictures; good technical detail; fascinating appendices; convenient size to hold.

    Not so good (losing half a mark):- my copy has two, half pages which are illegible; more spelling mistakes than might be expected.

    Well done to all concerned.

    • I have contact you privately about the illegible pages and sending a replacement.

  3. “This is a very comprehensive and interesting account of all aspects of her final voyage through unfamiliar waters, viewed from Captain, Officers, passengers and crew with a huge amount of photographs, many of which have never been seen before. I found this book to be a delight to read and thoroughly recommend it to all our members, particularly if you have fond memories of this icon of British shipbuilding, operated, maintained and for most of her life ‘The’ flagship of our British Merchant Navy. So sadly missed.
