The new QUEEN ELIZABETH yesterday in Southampton

Seen here yesterday departing Southampton is the new "QUEEN ELIZAETH" last addition to the CUNARD fleet, after QM2 the ship is the second largest ever built for this Historic Company. The QE was ordered to the Italian FINCANTIERI shipyards in 2007, she was delivered in October of 2010. Despite being advertised by CUNARD as an Ocean Liner, she does not qualify for this category, she doesn't have the heavy plating throughout her hull and the propulsion system is not one for a dedicated liner. "QUEEN ELIZABETH" is approximately 92.000 GRT and has a top speed of 23.7 knots. She is operated by CUNARD cruising all over the World. Photos 27.4.2012
