again she called in cape town  - with the original funnel colours and blue boot legging - and a dirty smudge on her port side - caused no doubt by the tugs !

Wonderful collection of photos of some of her many different configurations over the years!
First sailed on QE2 in August 2003 aged 6 years old. Last stepped foot and sailed on QE2 in July 2008. Last saw the seagoing QE2 in person from the decks of QM2, on QE2's last Transatlantic crossing (Eastbound tandem) in October 2008. Visited QE2, in her new life, in Dubai back in January 2020.
