Maritime Royalty: The Life and Times of the Queen Mary
Wednesday, October 1 at 6:30 pm
The Queen Mary set a new bar in luxury ocean liner travel – and new speed records – when she sailed from Southampton, England to New York in May 1936. In her heyday, the majestic art deco liner boasted five dining areas and lounges, two cocktail bars and swimming pools, a grand ballroom, and even a small hospital, and captivated the American and British imagination. Join maritime scholar Bill Miller for an illustrated lecture on the storied Cunard liner’s 80-year history as a passenger vessel, as a World War II troopship, and now as a historic hotel.
