Queen Elizabeth

This image was taken shortly after she had turned at the upper turning ground and was heading down the River Test towards the Ocean Terminal. I imagine the helicopter had been chartered by the press because there were a number of photographers leaning out of an open door on the other side. Lucky them!

Great Shot, But I still think she looks more like a car carrier from the side - don't like her lines but that's my view.

The decks above her wheelhouse almost bring to mind the sight of those rather dodgy looking Red Sea ferries!

I don't think she does look any better than Ventura. What the the squat funnel with badly applied Cunard markings, I don't think the Cunard livery does these ships any favours at all. Now the Costa equivalent, Costa Luminosa doesn't look to bad for a modern cruise ship!

Nothing wrong with the design, she's built to provide what most passengers expect from a modern cruise experience.

I really think the time has come to stop saying that all modern cruise ships look like blocks of flats, we may think it but lets try and contain ourselves gentlemen and think of something new to say.
