This past Sunday saw the Queen Elizabeth, arrived for the first time, and what a sight it was. At 964.5 feet, she can carry 2,081 passengers and 1,005 crew, and was bilt in 2010. This ship maybe one of the largest ships to enter st. john's. What a sight watching her leave, the otherships in the harbour give her a send off by, all taking turns blowing thir whistle, doing what is called the harbour symphony.
