It is not my favorite typ of ship but the „Queen MaryII“ is one of the last transatlantic liners operating for the English Cunard Line. In past the Queen visited Hamburg many a time and it was always more than a normal call when thousands of enthusiasts gave warm welcomes to the vessel either way she was passing by to dock at Blohm & Voss or only for a short stay during a cruise.

„Queen MaryII“ is seen here drydocked at Blohm & Voss dock no.17 in november 2005.
