New Queen Elizabeth 3 Video Posted

Cunard, having accepting delivery of QE3, finally has posted a decent video of the ship.  Thank you Cunard for this excellent video.  Now that I have seen the ship in action, you have saved me money!!!  I can cancel my maiden transatlantic trip and go on a real liner, QM2. 

Actually, the decision was difficult to switch the booking to QM2's Caribbean Calypso cruise, but was mainly an economic decision and not a reflection on the ship.  The interiors are stunning and we will sail on her someday, but for now it will be QE2's replacement and Flagship of Cunard, the Queen Mary 2.  The countdown to the cruise begins!  This spot, beneath the bridge, similar to that on QE2, will be our favorite spot to view the sea.

In fairness, I cancelled yesterday before the video came out and the decision had already been made.  Now, what is the obsession with the bulbous bow in the QE3 video????
