    I went down to Calshot spit to watch the 'queens' depart together the other evening. They passed just as the hazy sun was setting, giving them a nice hue (difficult for exposures though).

    First, Queen Mary 2, dwarfing the lifeboat. She is one of only 2 true ocean liners of the world (Queen Elizabeth 2 the other):

    By-standers watch as she sails into the Solent:

    Next up, the newest of the 'queens', the Queen Victoria. She isn't an ocean liner, just a cruise ship, hence the lack of 'RMS' status:
