Q.E. 2: 1969<br>"Ships Have Been Boring!"

Product Description
Cunard Line: "Ships Have Been Boring Long Enough!" touts the headline on this pre-maiden voyage intro brochure for the QE2 dated July 1968.
 
The Cunard copywriters were waging verbal war against their very own former flagships:
 
"Cunard is about to launch man's ultimate weapon against boredom at sea ... enough of cruise ships with their deadly cargoes of deck chairs, lap robes, cucumber sandwiches and shuffleboard pucks. Enough! QE2 has been built, from keel up, for younger, more demanding taste." And thus Cunard shot down 128 years of tradition culminating with their iconic ships filled with cucumber sandwiches and shuffleboard pucks, the QUEEN MARY and QUEEN ELIZABETH. Not too many years in the future Cunard began touting their lap robed encrusted traditions as the very reason to sail on the QE2.
 
This brochure unfolds to promote the Maiden Season sailings with three cruises beginning with on January 17, 1969. The first regular transatlantic crossing was scheduled for April 18th. But those pesky turbines caused enough problems during her November 1968 trials that Cunard sent the ship back to the builders and canceled almost everything promoted in this brochure. The brochure opens to 18" by 24" to show extensive rates and a large (and hazy) side view of the ship with statistics underneath.
