Queen Mary 2 at Halifax,NS Oct.3,2007

Cunard's QM2 at Pier 23 on October 3rd 2007. Both Queens visited Halifax on 2nd and 3rd, probably last time for QE2 sadly to be sold. Sam Cunard started all this from here in Halifax, Nova Scotia, what would he think of these ships?

I'm quite sure that the yard number for her hull wasn't destined to be the QM2... originally supposed to be a P&O; vessel but changed. Any ideas?

I remember reading somewhere during the bidding period for her that Alstom Engineering in Frace bet the bid of Harland and Wolff by over £90 million. Not sure how accurate that is but im pretty sure her hull number was destined to be hers.
