The Orient Line's beginnings can be traced back to 1797. Created for the purpose of operating a fleet of steamships between London and the Australian Colonies, it was a venture into the unknown, its success testament to the acumen of its founders, two of London's oldest shipping firms, Anderson, Anderson & Co., and F. Green & Co. They had extensive shipping interests from the West Indies to South America and the Pacific Coast and owned and operated a fleet of famous clipper ships on the Australian wool trade, when their fleet would bring out emigrants to the colony and sail back laden with prime fleece. Cruise ships today owe a great legacy to the pioneering work done by the Orient Line when it developed and perfected seasonal cruising in 1889 from British ports.

FIFTY years ago the last British-built transatlantic liner was launched. Christened by HM the Queen on 20 September 1967, the 963ft-long vessel was named Queen Elizabeth 2. By the end of that same day, she was already known by her famous nickname: QE2. Fast, smart and sleek, QE2 sailed over 5.6 million miles and carried more than 2.5 million passengers during a magnificent career spanning nearly forty years. Put simply, she carried more people further than any ship before her and remains the longest serving express liner in history. Having sailed both as a liner and as a cruise ship, served her country in the Falklands conflict and undergone multiple makeovers, she also has one of the most fascinating histories of any vessel and remains one of the best loved and most celebrated. With stories from captains, crew and passengers, and an unparalleled collection of photographs, Chris Frame and Rachelle Cross bring the majestic QE2 to life in this commemorative tribute.

A full-color record of the liner including images from her past and present, this is the definitive photographic souvenir of a perennially popular luxury liner. The beauty and elegance of Queen Elizabeth 2 is showcased for the first time in this luxurious paperback edition. It will appeal to a whole new generation of QE2 fans, as the book takes the reader on a journey through the liner's decks with full-color photographs of each public room as they are today and a special behind-the-scenes tour of the bridge, engine room, principal storerooms, crew areas, and other parts of the ship that passengers never saw, and the ship's guests are unlikely to have ever seen. From the unique perspective of two devoted QE2 fans who sailed aboard her during her service life, the book is filled with amusing and interesting anecdotal stories of the ship, her 40-year life at sea, and the various characters who have sailed aboard her.
