Overview

HMS Queen Elizabeth 2 is the most celebrated craft afloat and one of the greatest technical achievements of the 20th century. In her construction and maintenance are involved almost every science, profession, and trade known to civilization. On her bridge stand officers, who besides being the pick of the Royal Navy, have passed rigid examinations in all studies pertaining to winds, tides, currents, navigation, and the geography of the sea.
For 91 days, author Bernard M. Patten, M.D., sailed around the world on this ultimate cruise ship. What was it like onboard this most luxurious of luxury liners? "Marvelous, simply marvelous," he assures the reader with obvious enthusiasm that spills off every page.
Determined to give the reader the complete QE2 experience, Patten and his wife, Ethel, roomed in progressively better accommodations, moving level by level from the least expensive class ("Mauritania 5") to the Penthouse Suite, which included their own butlers, Geoffrey and Paul. Along with the Pattens, readers will experience every deck, every restaurant, and every level of luxury that this incredible ocean liner has to offer.
Whether you’re a cruise buff, or planning your own stay aboard this fabulous ship, or just want to take a trip in your imagination on a cold rainy night, Cruising on the Queen Elizabeth 2 will provide you with interesting information, entertaining stories, and ample pleasures.

    91 One Days Around the World Frozen in Time

    I have never been on a cruise and know ditto about the routine but this book was very specific. Its written in a daily diary style and its rich with details about ports, sea life, food, passengers, entertainment and the different accommodation available.
    I found intriguing the author himself, I like his inflated ego because he is so weird, he and his wife are doctors and he tells us how much money he made in the stock market about his chauffeur his sex life and and he gives us details of his feeling, thinking. He writes about other fellow passengers with humanistic honesty that its just funny. In fact there was one character he refers to Mr. Doom who was a financial analyst and he predicts our present day financial collapse! Then there Miss Lonely-hearts who is looking for romance, its just full of human nature type of thing. This was my type of book simply because I love reading about conspicuous characters.
