Queen Elizabeth

New cruise ship on her delivery voyage from Italy to Southampton. Photographed here by my dad on the 5th October leaving the port of Algeciras after making a short technical stop there.

At first sight I am not sure she inspires me too much - just another box from the outside?

I think she is slightly better looking than Queen Victoria, or maybe I Just prefer the name Queen Elizabeth.

I agree with Alan - looks better than the 'Queen Vic'. Very good to have this view of her. Many thanks, Gibdan.

They're almost identical as far as I can see - the only markedly visible difference being that Queen Elizabeth is squarer and more built up at the aft end, which makes her look worse - no doubt to bring in more dollars by squeezing in a few more cabins.
The profile of QV, which has a 'stepped' aft end therefore makes her look more 'balanced', or as much as you can balance a brick that is.
