Queen Victoria

Post by From the North » Tue Jul 27, 2010 10:40 pm

So far I haven't seen anything on here about Cunards Queen Victoria coming to the Clyde tomorrow.

Does anybody have arrival and departure times.

Many thanks

And is she still due to leave at 6pm? Are there any special viewing arrangements for her? Presume there's no fireworks as it's so early (unlike QM2 last year)?

Just watching her bridge web cam at present- looks as if she's approaching the Cumbraes at 0535.

Interesting to see her AIS track from Belfast. Out of Belfast Lough then south to the level of Peel in the Isle of Man then a slow turn and back up to the Firth, with a slow zig zag in the lower Firth, never more than 14-15 knots.

Ahoy

I was on her for the last two weeks in the Baltic she never did more than 17 kts at anytime during the cruise, infact at one point she was down to 8kts due to shallow water off Copenhagan.

At least you could see the opposite shore after a fashion. Super shots.

Did you enjoy your trip John? I have just had a look round her - very impressive. The Provost got presented with a Robert Lloyd painting of the Britannia (Cunards first ship). We got a guided tour and then lunch all very nice - I'll post some pics later
