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

QE2 had been waiting alongside in Dubai for nearly 12 years.  Please restore her Lifeboats and Tenders to where they truly belong - she looks naked without them - please spare her this ignominy.

Some lovely videos there. Queen Mary... a ship with style, grace, elegance (in my opinion).
What it must have been to have sailed on her I can only wonder.

Here is an interesting one: Filmed aboard RMS Queen Mary's last Westbound Transatlantic voyage in 1967, this film chronicles her history and last days. It is about 42 minutes long, I managed to watch it without buffering problems, so hopefully you can enjoy as well.

Magnificent!! thank you!  thank you!  thank you!

I had always heard of this film made for British television, and thought that I would never actually see it.
Forty-two minutes and fifty-six seconds, the Queen Mary lives again, although breathing her final breaths on the North Atlantic.
The Captain's Reception brought me back to the QE2, and when I heard the wood panelling creaking in the corridor, I melted.

Pure bliss.  Thank you!

Watching Captain Jones on the bridge made me think for a brief moment that I was watching The Poseidon Adventure.  The resemblence to Lesley Nielsen is striking.

Thoroughly enjoyed the QM video. Even then they thought it was the end of Atlantic liners. Keep rolling on QM2.

Wonderful find Rosie. Great footage of the 2 Queens passing each other. Bet your really looking forward to your TA on the 5th? It gets really exciting as the voyage approaches doesn't it? :) :)

Yes, Jem - Thought you'd like the mutual salutes!
There are yet more from Aaron1912 on the same YouTube page, expect you've found them :)

(Highly off topic - too busy shovelling big snow to get excited...just yet!
Trying to think of contingency plan should we be in peril of missing the boat )

Link here to the "Hotel"--Queen Mary. Have a look round the site--explore the ship and the Scorpion Submarine. I have a DVD of the QM that includes a walk through tour of the Sub.
