Queen Victoria Maiden Voyage

Went out on Tuesday night with Tim M and some others on evolution, to brave the coldness to go and see the maiden voyage of the new cruise ship queen Victoria.

Was a seriously cold evening, but well worth it with a fantastic fireworks display and it was like glass out there. Excellent cruise there and back.

That was probably the most spectacular fireworks display I've ever seen. Must have cost a fortune!

These cruise ships might be impressive but they just don't have the majesty of the old liners!!!
