The ol' gal has still got it in her...

A recent posting from on-board by a world-cruise blogger is that QE2 was up to a speed of 31.6 knots.

Damn fine news!

She's already in Honolulu this morning. Acting like a true ocean greyhound (since she ditched her deadweight baby sister in Florida).

I wouldn't have believed it if I didn't see the evidence for myself... a photograph taken by a friend of the navigation information broadcast on the cabin TVs...

32.8 knots on March 18

Unbelievably, according to QE2's current captain, these engines will be gutted in Dubai.

Unlikely that any passenger ship will ever reach this speed again.
