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:
The QE2 has been sailing the seas since
1990 1969 and later this year she’ll have her final voyage to Dubai in November 2008 where she will be refurbished and berthed permanently at the Palm Jumeirah from 2009 as a a luxury floating hotel.
