Queen Elisabeth 2 in Rotterdam

Posted on Friday, July 18th, 2008 at 7:52 pm CET

Today we saw the magnificent Cunard cruise ship the Queen Elisabeth 2 in Rotterdam. We spotted the large red word “Cunard” by chance between a few buildings as we drove home from our dentist appointment, so we had to go check it out. We crossed the Erasmusbrug and drove passed the Cruise Terminal where all the fancy people with their pipes and hats were getting ashore and onto busses. Unfortunately we didn’t have our camera with us, but here are some great pictures from today as found on Flickr by aureliozen and vanda2006:

She’s the furthest travelled ship of all time, 5.8 million miles to date, and also the fastest liner in the world.
