Thanks very much, Derek and Don. Sometimes the light in Adelaide is just perfect - and that was one of those mornings.

Thanks, Chris - she certainly was a beautiful sight in the early morning light (just after sunrise). As Allan says, though, the modern ships are not as easy on the eye as the ships from an earlier, grander age - such as the first Queen Mary, for instance.

Hi Chris

We were lucky in Southampton, that the designer of her is local and did a talk for our local WSS branch on her design. The funnel is not the only compromise to the original plans !! But the whole design is remarkable, although I have to say, not the most aesthetically pleasing.

So there was a logical reason, personally I think they should have taken the bridge down, said tongue and cheek !
Allan RO on Jun 09, 2011 09:03 (7 years ago)

The height of the funnel was restricted by the air-draft under the Verazzano Narrows Bridge, so blame the Americans for having too low a bridge.......

Superb photo, shame they didn't get the funnel right for the size of the ship. Nevertheless still a magnificent vessel.

However still the finest passenger ship in service able to maintain 26 knots in the Atlntic in a Force 8 gale, something the other large cruiseships would find impossible.

She recently visited Wellington NZ to become the largest ship ever to berth in the Port.
