About Me

Welcome to the online blog for traveler/writer/photographer Steven Barber. Come in. Relax. Take off your shoes and socks -- or any other article of clothing, this is the internet. Have a look around. I hope to intrigue, amuse, entertain, and maybe provoke you just a little. I love to find adventure. All I need is a change of clothes, my Nikon, an open mind and a strong cup of coffee.

A decade ago, in 2006, the Queen Mary 2 paid a visit to her linear predecessor, The Queen Mary.

Too large to fully enter the inner harbor near the original queen (that's how much bigger she is), the QM2 floated in the middle of Queensway Bay, blowing her horn and receiving a blast from the original Queen in return. 

Since this original visit, Cunard has made a tradition of new ships visiting and paying respects to the Queen Mary, including visits from The Queen Elizabeth and Queen Victoria.

By the time of the RMS Queen Elizabeth's visit, the cruise ship port next to the original Queen had been depend  enough to allow her to dock next to her sister.
