She is 963 feet long, weighs over 67,000 tons, has three swimming pools, 22 elevators, and a crew of 900. She can move through the water at over 35 miles per hour and is the last of the great transatlantic liners. Approaching her 30th birthday, she is a legend, the sole survivor of a bygone era, but she is thriving.

This new edition of the most thorough book on the legendary Queen Elizabeth II includes the refit of the mid-1990s and many new photographs of interiors and details. Captain Ronald Warwick begins with the colorful history of the Cunard Line. He continues with the construction and launching of QE2 and provides an engrossing narrative of the ship's colorful history, including her service in the Falklands war, her various mishaps, the recent sale of Cunard to Carnival, and the new owners' plans for the future.

The final chapter of the book is a deck-by-deck guide with photographs of all of the ship's public areas as well as those not seen by passengers: the engine room, kitchens, and areas limited to officers and crew.

A guide to the ship's interior completes the picture.
