The Queen Elizabeth (IMO: 9477438, Port of Registry: Southampton) is a Signature class cruise ship operated by Cunard Line. The vessel joined Cunard's fleet in October 2010 (officially named by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II in Southampton) and the second largest ship in the fleet after the Queen Mary 2. With her length of 294 meters and breadth of 36 meters, the vessel can accomodate 2,068 passengers and a crew of 996. Although having an almost identical interior arrangement to the Queen Victoria, the decor is very different. The ship is a tribute to the two previous Queen Elizabeths: the original Queen Elizabeth and the QE2.
The Queen Elizabeth arrived this morning at Rotterdam from Zeebrugge and will depart this evening.
