"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.
