Considered as one of the last of the great transatlantic ocean liners and one of the most famous ships in the world, the Clydebuilt Queen Elizabeth 2 is coming home to Greenock for the last time on the 5th of October.
Already, the QE2 has carried over two million voyagers, crossed continents and circled the globe countless times, completeed 24 full world cruises, sailed more nautical miles than any other ship (5.5 million nautical miles to be exact) over a period of 40 years. The fastest merchant ship in operation is now due to dock in Greenock as part of her farewell cruise around the British Isles.
Don’t miss your last opportunity to see the QE2, this grand old lady of the sea, as she sails into her home for one final time.
The famous ship is expected to arrive at the west end of Ocean Terminal in Greenock around 12pm on 5 October and will depart at 10pm to continue her farewell visits to British ports, heading for South Queensferry next and then on to Newcastle.
