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.
