QUEEN MARY 2 To Sea
November 7: QUEEN MARY 2 left Saint-Nazaire today for a second round of sea trials. It was reported that despite excellent weather, the departure of the ship attracted far fewer onlookers than it did in late September, when a crowd of thousands applauded the ship's departure. Upwards of 400 engineers will be putting QM2 through a series of test on trial runs between the offshore islands of Belle-Ile and Ile d'Yeu. She is expected back in port November 11th and is scheduled to be delivered to Cunard in December.
