Built like a Battleship19 viewsMy photo from our bridge visit of Tuesday 29th July 2008, whilst sailing through the Bay of Biscay enroute back to Southampton on what was our final voyage onboard. I was standing on the raised platform belonging to the port bridge wing's manoeuvring station (otherwise nicknamed a barbecue I think?), the port side compass repeater being in the foreground along with the bridge wing's leading edge weather deflector setup. My Dad happened to take a photo that shows me taking this photo hence knowing the above!Thomas Hypher

View ahead from the port bridge wing26 viewsMy photo from our bridge visit of Tuesday 29th July 2008, whilst sailing through the Bay of Biscay enroute back to Southampton on what was our final voyage onboard. We were going around 22 knots at the time and the weather deflectors were doing their job with our headwind allowing me to take this photo unlike my previous bridge visit when we were going over 28 knots!

July 2008 Bridge visit in the Bay of Biscay 233 viewsOne of my Dad's (James Hypher's) photos from our bridge visit on our final voyage. My Dad and I rediscovered this photo and the others in the series the other day having forgotten they were taken for a decade! I am the child with the Cunard bum bag taking my own bridge photos whilst standing on the raised platform for the port-side "barbecue" outer manoeuvring station next to the leading edge of the port bridge wing.Thomas Hypher

Controlled chaos and the Captain's chair24 viewsMy first visit to QE2's bridge, a special occasion with the children's club (wasn't something that happened on any other voyage I was on or normally for that matter with the children's club). Somewhere in a calm, sunny, and warm Bay of Biscay (out of character!) in late July 2005 heading back to Southampton after cruising the Med.Thomas Hypher
