The Final Voyage

Edited by Richard Tennant, Michael Gallagher and Miles Cowsill

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.

This is an outstanding book commemorating the final voyage of  wonderful vessel in minute detail which makes fascinating reading and I would very highly recommend it to our readers.
