Derek Guthrie, Edinburgh: "The QE2 at anchor in Iceland. I took the Voyage of the Vikings trip in June 2007. It was my first and sadly last trip on the QE2 which took in both Iceland and Norway."
Christine Coombs: "On our last night aboard the QE2 we teased our waiter that the desserts all too tasty to choose. He smiled and provided a huge plate with ALL the choices upon it."
Richard O Brien: "This was taken when I was training as a deck officer cadet in 2005. It was taken on a night stop in Alexandria, Egypt."
David Parrington: "I've taken the QE2 cruise some 15 or 16 times since 1993. Here is a set of models on the Cunard ships."
"This is the famous lamp post on the very top deck of QE2, adjacent to the dog kennels - for obvious reasons! It is in restricted area but I was finally allowed up to take this photo on my last cruise in 2007."

June Sutton, Hindhead, Surrey: "I've been on the QE2 six times but we didn't sail on her this year. This was taken when we left Cherbourg during D Day celebrations."
