Loved ocean liners as a kid; saddened that they went into such decline. When they built this thing I was psyched –right up until that fucked-up accident just before it entered service.

    1. My parents went on the Queen Mary I (wasn’t it called just the Queen Mary?) and my dad was very upset when they launched II because it was so much bigger and better and he wasn’t on it. Me, I think these things are entirely too big. It’s a floating casino/hotel!

    5. The gangway collapse was a real tragedy: it mostly killed the families of people who’d worked on the ship and were visiting it for the first time.
