I noticed looking through a few webcams you can hardly see the bow of many of the ship these days, often just the tip.  I guess the designers push the superstructure so far forward and upwards to maximise space on cruise ships that you don't get to see much of the ship.  I was looking at current cruise ships from the Wikipedia page http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:Cruise_ships and they don't have the long fo'c'sle deck like the QE2.

And another here :

You can set your own preferences as to which ships you want to include. Notice QE2 is there! It is the Virtual QE2 that is relayed to this site :

http://vqe2.com/

... and there is a map with the positions of very many ships :

(where I sometimes find QE2 in Dubai...)

Having spent time searching for a live webcam on one of the other ships etc in Port Mina Rashid
I came across this!

Take a look further down for interesting ports, many known to QE2 - while we wait and wait and wait.......

Good find Jem

As you can see, I've done a bit of moderation magic to merge this with similar posts (thanks for the link Rosie btw, which I have deleted from your post as now superfluous)

Rosie,

Here's a few shots of QE2 from Queen Victoria that I caught back in March. I guess you'll be keeping an eye on Cape Town visitors for glimpses of QE2 in the future? :)

Incidentally, Sam Warwick's website also has images of the Queens meeting. http://www.qe2.org.uk

Thank you, Chris

Those webcam views - maybe qV was trying not to cry....
And maybe it was the last time that QE2 had a shower!

Yes - good thinking about the Watch in Cape Town!

The solentwaters - http://www.solentwaters.co.uk/ - website mentioned earlier in this thread has a fascinating live radio feed from the ships/pilots etc around the Solent.  Wish I'd known about it last year when QE2 was departing!  Might also be interesting for the other new Cunarders, or other interesting ships.
