I would have seen her from my Hotel, had i not been a sick little puppy!

Wonderful portrait of an old Queen!

Hello dear Amelia wow! what a fantastic shot of this massive and beautiful "Queen"..It has been over this way in our waters but I've not seen her. What a lovely lady and what a great shot you have here. It is great that you have shared this image of her, wow, what a "little boat" huh Amelia?? :)) Have you sailed on her? I've cruised on a massive ship down into the Carribean but would love to tour this lovely little boat:) YSL for me on this one, enjoy seeing her without having to search, so I'll have her close at hand.:)

greetings to you Amelia Sarah USA

Amelia Royan on June 25, 2011

Thank you ®ock. At a weight of 151,400 tons, I think this 'boat' should be known as a ship :)))

Amelia Royan on June 25, 2011

Dear Joli, I'm so pleased you liked her. When she was built in 2003 she was the longest, widest and tallest passenger ship ever built :)

Warm wishes, Amelia

Amelia Royan on June 25, 2011

Thanks Alan, especially for the Y*. She really is an elegant ocean going liner. We spent a fair bit of time looking at the lifeboat training the crew were getting. I wonder if they expected rougher weather at Bergen her next port of call :)

Cheers, Amelia

Hello dear Nick, almost the whole of the population of Stavanger was suddenly speaking English with various dialects. It was interesting to hear according to Adrian, this deaf old bat needed some ear trumpets.

You may be interested to know that the thrust is provided by four Rolls-Royce Mermaid podded propulsion units. We get everywhere ;)


Nick Weall on June 26, 2011

There is nothing quite like the thrust of a Mermaid for getting a young queen moving ~ no wonder they were doing some lifeboat training in case of over excitement :))) xxx

Amelia Royan on June 26, 2011

You wouldn't have seen her Bonnie Lad, she was only in the harbour for about 8 hours, then she cruised up to Bergen; but you would have seen other cruise liners, they all seem to call in here on their way north in the summer season. Today it was The World ;)))

Amelia Royan on June 26, 2011

Good evening dear Sarah, yes she is a Trans-Atlantic cruiser, built for that in fact. Here is her itinerary for June:

17 June 2011 Southampton, England Full Day

18 June 2011 At Sea

19 June 2011 Stavanger Full Day

20 June 2011 Flaam, Norway Full Day

21 June 2011 Geiranger, Norway Full Day

22 June 2011 Bergen, Norway Full Day

23 June 2011 At Sea

24 June 2011 Southampton, England Full Day.

She then left Southampton, and will be in New York on 1st July :)

I have never been on a cruise, get seasick in fact! But I'm pleased that you enjoyed seeing her here in Norway. Many thanks for the Y* too :)))

Warm hugs, Amelia

Amelia Royan on June 26, 2011

Hi there Steve, I bow to your superior knowledge regarding the large beam-ends of Queens! Great comment - thanks for the smile :)))

I'm pleased you liked her, she is an elegant Lady indeed :)

Cheers, Amelia

Amelia Royan on June 27, 2011

You see dear Nick, we are not merely meek little weaklings us mermaids. I have to say that Sven and his mate can do the same job as 4 of us, but he prefers the easy life ;)

Nick Weall on June 27, 2011

The muscles of a Mermaid are to be admired it seems :))) xxx

Janina_Bieleńko on June 27, 2011

Wonderful clear colors. I like. Janina

Amelia Royan on June 28, 2011

Thank you dear Janina. The Queen Mary 2 is the second largest passenger liner in the world, and yet she looks so elegant :)

Warm wishes, Amelia
