Sorry for so many choices. I don't remember anyone asking this poll. I hope this isn't too overwhelming.

Did I leave any off?

I voted for the QE2, although Queen Mary came in second. If she were still here I probably would have voted for the Normandie.

By the way Hank, great poll. I always enjoy the polls.  :)

It might be good to give everyone three votes -- in that way, we could all vote for QE2 and also show which two other ships we like.

Great idea for poll however given where I live and that I look on this forum everyday the vote was always a foregone conclusion!!

You can still do it :) .

Alternatively, any of the Moderating team can do it for you if you wish.

Hi Hank. If you go to the top of the topic, underneath the poll options you should see "Edit Poll." The options to change may be under there, however you may need to 'reset all counts to 0' which would mean we would all have to vote again. I'm sure a moderator will help you out with this.

Oriana is classed as an Ocean Liner I do believe. If you are able to have 3 votes they would have to be ALL CUNARD QM2/ Queen Mary / QE11.

I have done that now. Everyone has 3 votes. I have not reset all votes to zero, but have allowed everyone to change votes, so those who have already voted can vote for two more ships, or indeed for a total of any 3 ships of their choice.

Let us know in case of any problems.

It might actually be most interesting if you didn't have QE2 on it at all!

Rob has a very good point.  It might be good to ask one's favorite 3 liners other than QE2.

Sorry folks, I have started yet another poll for you to vote in. Similar to Rob's suggestion, I have created a poll asking, Excluding QE2, which is/was the greatest liner of all time?

To be honest, I should have let five choices be available for so many ships. Oh well. I'm not worrying about it now.
