The new Cunard cruise liner Queen Elizabeth went afloat for the first time in the Fincantieri dry dock.
Please visit Cunard Queen’s QE site to view the schedule of Queen Elizabeth’s 2011 Inaugural World Cruise and to listen to Carol Marlow’s speak on the new Queen Elizabeth.
I am afraid, I am not overly enthusiastic about the new ship. Several news papers branded the new Queen Elizabeth a successor to the QE2, which personally I think is downright insulting. The new QE is more cruise ship than ocean liner and more a sister to Cunard’s Queen Victoria. But I am sure she will have her share of loyal followers like the other two Cunard ships.
