Queen Victoria

I had never expected to snap this photograph of one of the world's newest and biggest cruise liners, the Queen Victoria, but it was shot from my vantage point at Penang Hill. This liner made three maiden stops in Malaysia and Penang was its last port of call. Earlier, it had berthed at Port Klang and Kota Kinabalu.

Queen Victoria is Cunard Line's second largest ship, after the Queen Mary 2. The ship is on her ‘Pathway to the Explorers’ maiden world cruise to 36 destinations in 23 countries and had set sail on 13 Jan 2008 from New York.

The 12-deck, 90,000-tonne liner has 990 staterooms, a 371-square metre shopping arcade, seven restaurants, 13 bars, three swimming pools, a 4,000-book library, a ballroom and a theatre that can seat 830 guests.
