Cunard replaces turbine on Queen Mary 2

SANTA CLARITA, Calif. -- Cunard Line replaced one of two gas turbines onboard the Queen Mary 2 during an extended call in Oslo, Norway.

After the turbine swap, the ship left port about five hours later than originally scheduled.

Cunard said the maintenance wouldn't affect the ship's onward itinerary.

The QM2's two turbines, which are situated below the funnel, are used when the ship needs to achieve higher speeds. Four diesel engines handle the bulk of the ship's power.
