Queen Elizabeth

Queen Elizabeth cruise ship, IMO 9477438, port of Livorno
We have already seen the “Queen Elizabeth” arriving at dawn, a few months ago, escorted by a few tugs. Now she is back in port and preparing to leave.

Her sister ship, the “Queen Victoria”, has not yet showed up in Livorno, but we caught her once in Venice.

With a calmer sea the 294-meter cruise ship doesn't need tugboats.

I've heard this is a special ship. But I wouldn't know personally. Sure is big! I like that first shot.

Wonderful shots of the lady. She has very sharp, distinct lines.

So did they take the train for a few hours outing in Florence?

Huge, and fascinating for me!

I guess I never realized these giants can go into port without tugboats.

Another one of those "little boats" you see around town. :)
