The date was March 18, 2008 and QE2 was speeding along between Shanghai, China and Osaka, Japan. The 32.8 knots was recorded at 9:55pm


The most beautiful liner in the world is also easily the fastest, even in her final year of service. A permature retirement perhaps, for the most beautiful and succesful ship in the world, who's heart still beats strong.
