What where the thoughts of those two vessels at the time they where built? Given that they where not built in the UK, and where more of a Cruise ship design then anything else.

Saturday - San Juan (Turnaround day)
Sunday - At Sea
Monday - La Guaira, Venezuella
Tuesday - Grenada
Wednesday - Barbados
Thursday - St Lucia
Friday - St Thomas

That was a great route. I did a month on there as replacement for someone before i went back on QE2. Breakfast was aft at an open air buffet, venezuela was a lobster thermidor caught off the wall of the restaurant for $5.00.
During my first breakfast the Captain sits next to me , says "Hi, my name is Dick" At that point i realised how laid back that ship was. I remember a singer who joined us for 2 weeks, Pamela Blake who was fresh from Broadway, we ended up on QE2 again.

Could the QE2 ever go back into service as an ocean liner?
