QE2 had been waiting alongside in Dubai for what seemed like ages...Please don't leave her looking more like a Hotel-with-a-Hull than the greatest Liner afloat - Please restore her Lifeboats and Tenders to where they truly belong - she looks naked without them - please spare her this ignominy.

I find this Princess design one of the most, if not the most hideous cruise ship designs out there.....and they keep building more of them!  What a sharp contrast to the classic lines of QE2.  What were the designers thinking when they worked on the bridge area?  It looks like they just ran out of time and figured a nice strut would do to support the massively ugly bridge.  The aft end is equally distrubing.  Everytime I see one of these, I have the same reaction.   :-X A co-worker recently cruised on the Princess Ruby, somewhat under duress with his wife iand in-laws, and reported the same thoughts, although he did say that once in side, it was nice.  :o

Hi Again Chris!

I Still cant manage to find the Fremantle 2008 Shots, It only lets me see as Far as Adelaide. How can i access them?

Sorry for the trouble! haha

Oh and the cover, It is so obviously Fremantle!! The Colours of the sun shining on her are really distinct! I Love it, and would love the book!!!

Hi Matt,

(Excuse the sales pitch) but the book is on special at Fishpond: http://www.fishpond.com.au/Books/Nonfiction/Transport/Ships_Shipbuilding/General/9780752448039/?cf=3&rid=628079638&i=2&keywords=QE2+

The cover (both front and back) are from Fremantle.

There are some other Fremantle shots here: https://www.flickr.com/search/?q=fremantle&w=40021652%40N02 although not many are from 2008.
