Steve Herra

Steve served aboard the QE2 as a purser and will use his personal experience for this talk based upon the history of Cunard, from 1840 until the present day, and it will include some of the more famous liners but not all 250!

He will look at some of the celebrities and stars who sailed aboard Cunard ships. Then answer questions such as: What did Charles Dickens think about the furnishings aboard Britannia? Which actress brought her gleaming white Rolls Royce on board Queen Mary and her own chickens as she demanded fresh eggs each day?

UPDATE: Please note that Window on the World Talks will now only take place on a face to face basis and not online via zoom.
