Since 1969, Queen Elizabeth 2 has sailed over 3 million miles, been a troopship in the Falklands War, and had her main engines changed from steam to diesel. She was the last great ocean liner and was the last real ship of state ever built. She was born in a time when the jet and air travel had stolen most of the passenger trade across the Atlantic, and was designed to cruise as much as brave the North Atlantic in all seasons. She is still a familiar sight in major ports around the world, and has had many fans over the years.
