On Board the Queen Mary

“Almost 20 years after her maiden voyage on May 27, 1936, two young women boarded the RMS Queen Mary and headed to Europe – no Let’s Go travel guide in their hands, no Eurail Pass, no backpacks, and no phones.” So begins Rusty and Kit’s adventure to Europe on September 8, 1954.

It really must be true. Kit and I just came down from the Promenade – the wind nearly blew us off!!– (overboard, that is!)

On board the Queen Mary, the girls made friends with Brits and Americans, danced on the swaying ship, watched the moon and the sun rise, and snuck from Tourist Class to Cabin Class.
