bulletNot a link, just a couple of factoids:  The old Queen Mary was just as fast (up to 35 knots) as the new Queen Mary 2.  The old Queen Mary is rumored to be haunted.  The old QM is a nice place to stay - I've spent a night in one of her first-class cabins.  (No, it wasn't scary; no, I didn't see any ghosts.)  Also, if you're at all into Art Deco, visit this ship.
