Comparing the QE2 to the Titanic: Length in feet QE2 963; Titanic 882. Weight in Tons: QE2 70,000; Titanic 46,000. Top speed in Knots: QE2; 34 Knots, Titanic 24 Knots.
The QE2 was not named after the current Queen but rather after the wife of King George VI. This explains the convention of using the actual number – i.e. Queen Elizabeth 2 – rather than the Roman numerals of Queen Elizabeth II
I just love this graphic #beach image I shot for @stregissaadiyatisland #resort it will remain timeless. The perfectly set up loungers were not a coincidence, these were spaced accurately with a measuring tape & aligned with a string line. The recreation staff think I’m a bit crazy for perfection 😝 #myabudhabi #livingthedream
