QM2 Headed for Blohm + Voss Repair

November 6, 2006

One of the world's largest ocean liner, the Queen Mary 2, is scheduled to arrive in Hamburg on November 12, 2006 at Blohm + Voss Repair GmbH, a company of ThyssenKrupp Marine Systems.

In the course of her previous yard period in the time from May 6 to 10, 2006, one of the four engine pods, a Mermaid Pod, which had been damaged when leaving Port Everglades/Florida, was removed to be repaired by Blohm + Voss Repair. From November 12 to 17, 2006, the pod weighing approximately 270 tons will be reinstalled. In addition to this, all balconies will be provided with a sprinkler system and the bridge wings will be extended by two meters.

The QM2 will arrive in Hamburg without passengers on board and leave the port of Hamburg on November 17, 2006, at about 2 am for Southampton from where she will start a transatlantic passage to Fort Lauderdale and, subsequently, a Western Caribbean cruise.
