Queen Elizabeth (3) made her maiden call to her homeport of Southampton, UK today.  From at least these photos posted on the Cunard Facebook page, she looks rather stunning.   Other angles, particularily of the stern area are less flattering.  In a few days, the Queen will name the ship.  She better not go off message and name the ship Queen Elizabeth the Third!  All the names have been welded to the hull with no room to add a "3" and the ship fully stocked with Queen Elizabeth merchandise.  As Cunard says, "the world awaits!"
