Queen Mary 2

The Queen Mary 2 arrives here on Saturday, the 24th, on her maiden voyage from England. This ship made news recently when she was docked in a French port and they opened her to the public for tours. A gangplank broke and several people were killed and several more injured. (I'd be a bit nervous boarding a ship right after that kind of incident.) She's being touted as the largest crusie ship in the world and costing almost a billion dollars to build. We get some large ships here, but she's supposedly going to dwarf them all. She won't be docked at the cruise ship dock, but in the harbor. We don't always head into town on the weekends, but we might have to go take a look that day.
