Bay_of_Biscay_from_QE2~0.jpg
Racing through a Force 9 gusting Force 10 in the Bay of Biscay (2)4 viewsMy Dad's (James A Hypher's) photo from our October 2004 voyage. Another photo in the series from this Bay of Biscay passage. My Dad was one of only two passengers out on deck at the time, and he was getting soaked in spray from the waves breaking over the bow but at the aft end of Boat Deck about 800 feet aft of the bow! Unfortunately I was busy being badly seasick for about a day and a half in our cabin at the bow but will never forget the motions of QE2 racing through the storm and our cabin creaking!Thomas HypherSep 02, 2020
Bay_of_Biscay_from_QE2_outbound~0.jpg
Racing through a Force 9 gusting Force 10 in the Bay of Biscay (1)4 viewsMy Dad's (James A Hypher's) photo from our October 2004 voyage. QE2 had left Southampton 7 hours late due to a very late arrival caused by the same stormy weather. We would go on to arrive in Vigo, Spain (our first port of call) on time after a day and a half of bombing along in the upper 20s of knots in what was originally scheduled to be two whole sea days. Captain McNaught definitely opened up the throttles.Thomas HypherSep 02, 2020

Departing Rotterdam with one of several water salutes!5 viewsMy Dad's (James A Hypher's) photo from Friday 4th August 2006 (14 years ago today! - day of uploading this photo). We had a wonderful send off from Rotterdam including a choir, but almost girted the tug off our stern with our sheer power and torque even at 72rpm as we left the cruise terminal. My Uncle and Auntie watching from the dockside said the tug master only just recovered and their photos show how dicey it was. Family friend and fellow ship enthusiast Stephen Macey is in the photo.Thomas HypherAug 04, 2020

To cold to enjoy the pool near Cape Horn2 viewsIt seems noone is interested in enjoying the pool while QE2 rounded Cape Horn during the world cruise in February 2008.
