A major birthday and a major anniversary in our family warranted a major holiday to celebrate them. What better than to take our third (and longest voyage) on Queen Elizabeth 2 as she entered her final year of service? We visited Madeira and three of the Canary Islands, not to mention A Coruna, Spain on the way out and Lisbon, Portugal on the return. These ports provided a variety of photographic opportunities. The ship remains as magnificent and timeless as ever, though the crew's ethos appears more Carnival-generic nowadays, rather than Cunard- specific.
