    The Queen Mary II is slipped into Hamburg under cover of darkness last night, but they'd have trouble hiding her in the daytime - she is really massive!

    We went down to have a gander at Cunard's flagship at lunchtime today, and she's an impressive site, albeit docked in what is still very much a building site!

    There's a carnival atmosphere at the docks, lots of tourists, live bands, food stalls and Union Jack's hanging from the cabins.

    She was until 2006 the largest passenger vessel ever built - Thomas remarked at lunch that the Titanic was much smaller than this, and it's interesting to get a sense of scale.

    Powered by 416-cylinder diesels and 2 gas turbines in a CODAG arrangement more commonly found on naval vessels, she's capable of a not too shabby 29.62 knots. Which is a lot faster than I can run.

    Well worth a look!
