Queen Elizabeth 2 has arrived to Lisbon Port... Again!

After her last call to Funchal (Madeira Island, in the photo above), the Queen has entered Lisbon Port today at 5 a.m. (so early...). It's 6:30 a.m., it's a beautiful and sunny day. She will be calling Lisbon four more times until she sails away to Dubay to become... a Hotel!... Well, it could be worse, couldn't it? She will depart today at 4:00 p.m. and I hope she will have a pleasant stay at Lisbon!...

A beautiful liner. Whaere will she be a floating hotel? In Lisbon? MB

Rambling Round, thank you! It was taken by Sérgio, from Funchal (you may see more of his photos of Queen Elizabeth 2 on the link to his blog, under his name on the post).

Knoxville Girl : that’s exactly how I feel when I see her beautiful funnel!!

Small City Scenes, she will be a floating hotel at Dubai!

Ola sailor girl,
Essa foto do QE2 no Funchal é do meu amigo Marco Andrade do Funchal que também colabora com o blog. Pode usar sempre as fotos que precisar e se pedir outras de outros navios, posso enviar sem problema.

A wonderful tribute to the grand lady! I am so pleased I caught a final glimpse of her when she visited Adelaide back in March.

Sailor Girl said...

Yes, Gordon, I remember that!!! Wonderful to see her still sailing!!!

Veio-me agora á ideia que eu sou capaz de ter visitado este navio quando era pequena! Será possivel? Andava numa escola inglesa e levaram lá os putos todos.
