All aboard for the Games

If QE2, the world’s most famous ocean liner, ends up in Cape Town providing hotel accommodation for next year’s World Cup, it looks like she will be facing competition.
I hear that Holland America Line has chartered three ships to provide rooms for visiting football fans, officials and dignitaries during the four weeks of the event from June 11 to July 11.
It’s not a new trend. Norwegian Cruise Lines will be providing a ship to be berthed in Vancouver to add 10 per cent to the city’s hotel capacity during the Winter Olympics in February next year.
Norwegian Star will arrive in Vancouver on February 10, after a four-day
sailing from Los Angeles. On March 2, the ship will head south, returning to Los Angeles on March 6.
What are the chances of the Thames being stacked with cruise ships during the London Olympic Games three years from now?
