What If The Queen Elizabeth Did Not Burn?

Fri Oct 19, 2007 2:28 am

I ask about the Normandie, so why not ask about the Queen Elizabeth. If she did not burn, do you thing she would have been successful as Sea Wise University our would have been retired by the 80's?

I think if the original Queen Elizabeth had never burned I expect maybe another 15 years of service before the ship was finally retired due to sheer old age. It would probably ended up being a floating museum just like the original Queen Mary became.
