Aboard OCEANA
« on: May 14, 2015, 09:15 AM »
Hi everyone, I read with much enjoyment the stories and comments on the QE2 Story and I feel they are all linked to one thing, the love of the sea. During a winter cruise aboard P&O,s OCEANA in December my wife and I witnessed a beautiful sunset whilst sailing out of the Spanish City of Cartagena and I thought to myself, this is what it's all about. Can I share my small film with you all, it can be viewed here:

Nice one, and I like the music that accompanies the video. 
I was proud to be involved with planning QE2's 50 year conference in September 2017 in Clydebank

Hi Alan -

A wonderful video to capture the beautiful sunset and the ambiance of being on the water in a fine ship.  The choice of music is very good and perfectly sets the mood.  Thanks very much for sharing your video with us !

Sailing under the bridge in Lisbon
« Reply #7 on: Jun 22, 2015, 12:19 PM »
Hi everyone, my wife and I were sailing out of Lisbon just before Christmas time and we had a beautiful experience of a lovely sunset whilst sailing under the bridge aboard OCEANA. Lisbon is an atmospheric city I feel, and I enjoyed filming our sail away, I have put some Fado music to it as it evokes a lovely memory for me, especially knowing that QE2 called here for the last time on her ill fated voyage to Dubai. The plaintive tones could have been sung to QE2 herself as she departed Lisbon, I think on the 13th November 2008 for the last time. It can be viewed here.

A beautiful and very atmospheric piece of film. I had the same experience so many times on QE2 ,overlooking her bow, not wanting to move until the Sun 'went out' or the Sea became as black as the sky.
