Doug Jones presents "Cruising the Orient on the QE2"
Tuesday, March 26, 2013 – 7:30pm
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 trans-Atlantic liner and a cruise ship. Cunard sailed her across the North Atlantic for 35 years until she was replaced by the queen Mary 2 in 2004. The film begins in Sydney, Australia. The QE2 sails from Sydney on to Melbourne and Perth before heading to Bali. From Bali the ship continues on to the exotic island nation of Brunei. From Brunei, QE2 sales to Manila and the Philippines. Then the ship makes its way to Hong Kong, where some passengers travel overland to Xian and Beijing. The next stop on the Orient cruise is Tokyo and the wonders of Japan. Then QE2 heads back to the South stopping in Vietnam, Thailand, and Singapore. This film gives a glimpse of life in some of the most interesting travel destinations of the world. You will also see sights ranging from the Sydney Harbor Bridge to the Great Wall of China, form Balinese dancers in Indonesia to Crocodile wrestlers in Thailand. And the experience will take place off the gangway of one of the legendary liners of all time; Cunard’s QE2. (Partially underwritten by Ameriprise Financial)
