Product Description

Log abstract from the final eastbound transatlantic crossing of the RMS Queen Mary.  Sept 22, 1967.  She was still throwing up great times, averaging nearly 28 knots.  This was allegedly her 1001st crossing….  Captain John Treasure Jones in command.

The fame of the Cunard Liner was such that everyone wanted to be a part of her farewell.  So Southampton City Council published her last log from the epic cruise from the UK to California.  The largest and longest log abstract in history?  Really, it isn’t an abstract at all as it contains all the details of the voyage just as written in her log.  An extensive and exhaustive minute-by-minute account of the ship’s final trip.

“You don’t have to be British to love the RMS Queen Mary,” New York City Mayor John Lindsay on the occasion of her last voyage from New York.
