Built like a Battleship48 viewsMy photo from our bridge visit of Tuesday 29th July 2008, whilst sailing through the Bay of Biscay enroute back to Southampton on what was our final voyage onboard. I was standing on the raised platform belonging to the port bridge wing's manoeuvring station (otherwise nicknamed a barbecue I think?), the port side compass repeater being in the foreground along with the bridge wing's leading edge weather deflector setup. My Dad happened to take a photo that shows me taking this photo hence knowing the above!Thomas Hypher

Controlled chaos and the Captain's chair34 viewsMy first visit to QE2's bridge, a special occasion with the children's club (wasn't something that happened on any other voyage I was on or normally for that matter with the children's club).
