Queen Mary 2's Maiden Voyage--COMPLETED!!!


Watching the news recently, I learned that QM's sister ship, Queen Mary 2 has not only completed her maiden voyage to New York, that started out from Southampton to (some Floridian port)...she has also proved her seaworthiness in rough seas as well too.

Many of her passengers had minicams, took pictures from their suites, of the rough seas she plowed through. And they were "very" rough, as the waves splashed over her bow and onto her decks.

Seeing on the news of her arriving in New York, totally took my breath away, as I saw the tugs helping her to her docking pier. Wonder which of the piers she docked at?emoticon

Anyhow, it's wonderful that the new QM2 had a very succesful maiden voyage, her first time out at sea. And don't you wonder where she's headed next?

Her Captain Ronald W. Warwick, BTW, bears a striking resemblance to Captain E.J. Smith, but he wears glasses. His picture can be seen at the below URL link.emoticon

Hi Angel & Lill!

You're both welcome, for me sharing the above info with you about the "new" QM2.emoticon

It's just that when I first saw pictures of her over at T-T!...I thought that she was too top heavy. Until I learned the other day that she fought the rough seas, and won out as the true seaworthy vessel she is. And now, my hats go off for her, and her Commander & Chief, Captain Ronald W. Warwick and his crew. emoticon

tammy,
you are right my friend she definately looks top heavy and looks like she would not handle to well the rough seas/

however it is usually those kinds of ships that end up surprising us.

Thank you, Lill, I appreciate it.emoticon The moving my thread to the Cunard Line forum, that is.

Yes, I surely will try to keep you all informed about any new developements regarding the QM2. Hopefully, I won't be the only one.

HI Tammy

Personaly I would think she would look a lot nicer with a few funnels pouring smoke from them and a little less top heavy looking.

She does nothing for me realy I would much prefer a nice old steam ship.

But after saying that thanks for the links they are good
