Join the Yuma Civic Center as we present film maker Doug Jones 'Cruising the Orient on the Queen Elizabeth 2'.
In 1969 the legendary Queen Elizabeth 2 was launched as the third of the Cunard Queens. She was the first ship ever built to serve as both a transatlantic liner and a cruise ship. Cunard sailed her across the North Atlantic for thirty-five years until she was replaced by the Queen Mary 2.
In 1974 the QE2 made her first World Cruise. She continued to sail around the world each winter for her entire sailing life. Each year she would take a different route but every world cruise would include a large part of the Great Far East.
Doug Jones, one of America’s premier travel film producers, boarded the QE2 halfway through her final world cruise in Sydney, Australia. He sailed with the QE2 for forty days through the most exotic ports of the Orient to produce a travelogue CRUISING THE ORIENT OF THE QE2.
