The Queen Elizabeth 2 (QE2) was the flagship of the Cunard Line for over 30 years. QE2 is one of the last great Transatlantic liners. At 70,327 tons and 963 feet long (294 m), 105 feet wide, 32 feet draft with a maximum speed of 32.5 knots she is also one of the largest and fastest passenger vessels afloat.
The QE2 was built by the Upper Clyde Shipbuilders in the John Brown Shipyard in Clydebank, Scotland. She was launched on 20 September 1967 by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. QE2 made her maiden voyage from Southampton to New York City on 2 May 1969.

Sweet Indian couple enjoying the nice view. I didn't notice this is the 8888th photos I took with my Minolta Dimage Z2 digital camera till I upload the picture to blogger. What a prosperous number..
For those who are interested, more facts and pictures of Queen Elizabeth 2 are available in the Liner website by Rob (including pictures and facilities on board) or QE2 experience website.
