Queen Mary 2 refit

This week we have a look at a 15-month exhibition being mounted by Southampton’s SeaCity Museum on the subject of ocean liners. This Thursday, meanwhile, sees the largest ocean liner ever built go back into service when Queen Mary 2 leaves Southampton for New York after a 25-day refit at Hamburg’s Blohm & Voss shipyard that is estimated to have cost about $55 million. She will have room for 75 more passengers and at least a dozen more pets. Finally, we look at the subject of seat pitch on cruise line flights.
