This book give an accurate history of the development, construction and story of each of the new Cunard queens. It also makes comparisons to the first generation of queens.
One thing that makes this book better than other ones on the subject, is the author gives honest reviews (not all good) of the ships so this book doesn't feel like a big advertisement for Cunard.
This is definitely recommended above others.

Great on the Queen Mary 2 and the Queen Elizabeth 2. However, the Victoria is not a real ocean liner, not a real queen, and should not have been included in this work.
