PostSubject: Queen Elizabeth Update   Fri Mar 06, 2009 2:28 pm

I just received an e-mail this morning from Cunard in the UK. It wasn't much but it was an update on the new Queen Elizabeth!

You can read it here: http://ebm.cheetahmail.com/c/tag/BJsTb5B7SqK-B7gAed-M0wnGRh/?salutation=Dear%20Mr%20Nakov

Here is the note:

Very exciting! Smile

We
are delighted to bring you this update on the construction of our
newest Cunarder, Queen Elizabeth, currently being built at the
Fincantieri shipyard in Monfalcone, Italy.

Fincantieri,
who also built Queen Victoria who joined the fleet in 2007, have a
total of 600 employees dedicated to the construction of the first
sections of the hull. Senior representatives from Cunard are closely
monitoring every step of the production process to ensure that
everything runs according to plan.

The steel plates required to complete the
construction of her hull have all been commissioned and these weigh a
total of 18,000 tonnes. On 18 September 2008 the very first steel plate
was cut and this was recognised with a dedicated ceremony.
To date 12 main sections have been constructed. The keel laying section,
which is the first section to be laid in the dry dock, has already been built
and it is anticipated that the keel laying will be in June 2009 and in keeping
with tradition will be marked with a special ceremony.


We expect to announce Queen Elizabeth's on
sale date early in March and as you have expressed an interest in our
new liner - you will be amongst the first to know.

That's a great update although I am going to be sending a little note to my rep. I'm supposed to be on the priority update list and didn't receive a thing! Evil or Very Mad
