My friend and fellow liner junkie Carl Weber snapped these pictures yesterday of the eastbound Queen Elizabeth 2 sailing past Battery Park for the final time, meeting up with her big sister Queen Mary 2 at the Statue of Liberty, and then departing on their tandem crossing to their home port of Southhampton.

While I have sailed the QM2 and like the ship, the side by side comparison of the two draws an inevitable conclusion about grace and style on the high seas.

Thanks, Carl, for the excellent photos.

Last of the Grand Dames of the seas.. the end of an era indeed.
