Synopsis

The Queen Mary 2 is a feat of technology when one considers the massive scale of the project and the number of services offered on board this floating city. In length (1,100 feet), height (equal to that of a 23-story building), and weight (160,000 tons), the Queen Mary 2 surpasses all of its predecessors. It is the most technologically advanced and environmentally friendly liner ever built, and is captured in its full glory by Plisson's photographs. The informative text by journalist Gwen-Hael Denigot examines the construction, architecture, style, and mission of the Queen Mary 2, and also offers the historical background of Cunard Cruiseline Ships. This luxurious homage to the birth of a legend reveals the intrinsic beauty of technological excellence that will appeal to anyone interested in liners, travel, and architecture alike.
