Scheduled to set sail in autumn of 2010 with 6 maiden voyages, the Queen Elizabeth offers the ambiance of the age of grand transatlantic ocean liners. Not to be confused with her predecessor, the QE2, which served as the flagship of the Cunard line from 1969 to 2004, the Queen Elizabeth is a brand new cruise ship.

The new Queen Elizabeth will offer travelers several modern venues, including: The Garden Lounge, Games Deck, and art deco inspired Britannia Restaurant. This new ship also features the Yacht Club, which was one of the most popular lounges on the QE2.   The Yacht Club is a lounge that offers travelers 270 degree views.

The ship’s décor include rich woods, traditional detail, and carefully painted murals. Grand staircases, a state-of-the-art theater, and 6,000 volume library are also part of the ship’s features. And, for one last bit of historic detail, the ship’s port, Southhampton England was used by the real Queen Elizabeth during her reign.
