Queen Elizabeth.

Queen Elizabeth.
Album : Cruise Ships Dublin 2013.

Cunard line Queen Elizabeth rides at anchor in 'Quadrant 4' in Dublin Bay.

Built by Fincantieri in Monfalcone, Italy in 2010 the 294M vessel is impressive.

At the time this view was taken the wind was from 142 degrees, so preseumably the vessel would have been tacking into the mild 2 knot south easterly breeze on a similar heading. The westerly aspect of the starboard side catching the late evening summer sun and illuminating it nicely.

This vessel was amongst the 2013 season cruise ships on the list for Dublin Port, although the location was un-specified. It was removed from the list several weeks ago. Most 2013 visitors to Dun Laoghaire for the season were on the Dublin Port website [ www.dublinport.ie ] . Fortunate indeed that fellow Flickr user D464 was monitoring the situation and became aware of the Royal presence off Dun Laoghaire harbour!
