The world's largest and most luxurious cruiseliner Queen Mary II – which is 23 storeys high and four soccer fields long – docked in Cape Town yesterday (Tuesday 9 April). The ship carries 2 600 passengers and will depart for Southampton tomorrow to complete a 109-day around-the-world cruise.

The good news for Cape Town's tourism industry is that according to Paul Clarke of White Star Cruise & Travels, Cape Town was the only place that Queen Mary II stopped for as long as three days, as passengers consistently voted for an extended stop in The Mother City.
