Floodlights and fireworks…

Floodlights and fireworks light up the Queen Mary 2 in Southampton yesterday. The biggest liner ever built was named by Queen Elizabeth II. It will dock in the port of Piraeus to accommodate visiting VIPs during the Athens Olympics, from August. The Queen Mary 2, which belongs to Cunard Line, was built in St Nazaire, France, at a cost of $880 million. It will make its maiden voyage to New York next week.
