In 1840, Sir Samuel Cunard set sail aboard Britannia and inaugurated the first regular transatlantic steamship service. From that time forward, the Cunard Line has owned and operated hundreds of ships: it has transported immigrants to the new world, undertaken wartime service, and adapted seamlessly into the new cruising world of the modern age.
The Queens of the Cunard fleet are as iconic today as their illustrious forbears. This beautifully created colouring book celebrates the long heritage of the Cunard Line, the stunning interiors and exteriors of the vessels, and much more besides. Supplemented with fascinating text from celebrated maritime authors Chris Frame and Rachelle Cross, it is sure to captivate and educate children and adults alike.
Chris Frame and Rachelle Cross have shared a passion for cruise ships for most of their lives. Together they have written more than a dozen books as well as articles and stories for magazines and newspapers. Both have appeared on TV news speaking about cruising, while Chris has featured as an expert for the BBC, Sky News, and ABC. They have written The Photographic Journey series, books in the Story Series, A Photographic History of P&O Cruises, A Photographic History of the Orient Line, and The Evolution of The Transatlantic Liner.
