  • Beautiful, elegant QE2 - forever Queen of the Seas
This was such an exciting time, and excellent shot of Commodore Warwick and his pipe. 
QE2 - the ship for all of time, a ship of timeless beauty !

A Charity Cruise, that never was...
From the moment you first glimpsed the Queen,
 you just knew you were in for a very special time ahead.!
