OK Louis,

These faces are just a wee bit more recent - World Cruise 2007, photo again taken in Hong Kong

And, QE2 officer cadets about to get the 'King Neptune treatment' as they cross the line - World Cruise 2007.

I hope they all like spaghetti and fish.

Cheers

From the moment you first glimpsed the Queen,
 you just knew you were in for a very special time ahead.!

That is a great photo! Bet they were all straight inside for a drink afterwards! When was it taken?

My apologies for the two photos above not loading - I had downsized them and forgot to reduce the resolution - was still at 600 dpi. Try them now.

Cheers

It was taken during the Japanese Charter in Osaka back in 1990

Here is the same photo but notice that everyone is standing still and the Captain is standing up in the front row.

This photo was taken by the ships photographer ontop of a crane.

No wonder they were sitting by the time you got the rest of the crew out and organised.. ;)

Here is another one, which you might want to see in a larger version, here :

As you can see, this is a photograph of a computer screen! I received the picture in a rather odd Excel format, which can be opened only on a PC and not my Mac.

I wonder where the picture was taken? And when? It must have been 2008, and perhaps not much before September, as the photos were just being distributed to the crew while we were on board.

That image was taken on 7 September 2008 in Valencia. It was Captain Perkins last trip on QE2. I have that version and a version of them waving which I will attach tonight when I get home.

Just a thought, but there must have been a webcam shot or two of these massed gatherings as seen from the Bridge; did anyone save the images?

Hi Isabelle,

As Michael said - 7th September 2008. Rachelle and I were aboard during that voyage. It was amazing to see them all gathering on the bow of the ship.

It was another of those occasions where it felt so strange to know that she was so close to retirement.

Chris.

So that must have been her final call to Valencia (for another thread, that!).

Were there any later crew photos than this one, taken perhaps during the final voyage?
