Good article Frank  Cheers

An extract from it..........."the vessel's first world voyage will start from Southampton on January 5, 2011 - a 103-night sailing which includes 38 stops in 23 countries".

That date is very familiar to me.
Will be great to see her and get some real  close up photos :bounce:

She is out for sea trials today, left pier around 7am UK time.  She's been up to 23.5kts.  Check her out on AIS in the Adriatic.  CJ

Named today.

Rose:

Watching this first a bit short I thought. The second thing that came to mind was when the Captain did the 3 cheers to her Majesty the Queen you could faintly hear the crowd while the Captain could be heard clearly. (yes he was on mic) I would have thought those invited would be pro Cunard and pro Queen fans, or is this a bit of what we call the stiff upper lip and doing it in a sedate way?

The Queen appeared a bit "under-whelmed" too, I thought !  Any chance you could get this webcam on the site ? Maybe take off one of the Princesses ?  QE will be welcomed wherever she goes and it might be nice to see.  Thanks if you can, no worries if you can't. Rose   8)

I have made the change as you requested. I removed Norwegian Pearl for now.

This is the Hull that Carnival had for Holland America that was changed over to Cunard. Looking at the deck plans there isn't much difference. The biggest difference is QE is 26 feet longer. Almost all cabins are in the same locations except suites. They also removed one cabin from each deck to put in laundry rooms.
