    Called in to Algeceras on way to Southampton to have a paint touch up. Due into Gibraltar on the second cruise as the Canaries are the maiden voyage. Look forward to getting up close and having a good look when she docks here!

    Any Pictures appreciated!!!

    Cunard's new cruise ship, the Queen Elizabeth, has arrived into its home port of Southampton.

    Oh, what a tangled web we weave when first we practise to deceive.

    and aren't Cunard being shy over where they had her built ?

    Fincantieri 's Monfalcone shipyard in Trieste

    I think, therefore I am. I am, therefore I sail.

    Looks like they've done a nice job. Always tricky to get the proportions right on an aft cabin boat.

    Not been to that facility, but I did have a meal with Tommaso Milanese, then Condirettore Generale, some time ago in Edinburgh.

    In this case, I guess he invited you to see Monfalcone.
    And aside from the previous jokes, if you have such opportunity, I'd really recommend a yard tour. Absolutely impressive.
