QE2 in Cobh - 2nd October (clarification)

The Old Blog Cabin has been contacted by a number of people querying the arrival date of the cruise ship QE2 in Cobh. I can now confirm definitively that it will arrive in the port on Thursday, 2nd October 2008 at approximately 07.00hrs (local time).

I apologise profusely for the error. I gleaned the original wrong information from a website which had also incorrectly stated that the ship would be visiting Dublin.

The ship's full itinerary and those of its sister ships can be found on the official Cunard Line website at

Once again sorry for misleading people.

Here is the itinerary from Cunard's website:-

Sept 30 - Southampton, England - depart 5.00pm

October 1st - Cherbourg, France - 8.00am - 6.00pm

October 2nd - Cobh, Ireland - 9.00am - 6.00pm

October 3rd - Liverpool, England 12.00pm - 10.00pm

October 4th - Belfast, Ireland 12.30pm - 11.00pm

October 5th - Glasgow, Scotland - 12.00pm -10.00pm

October 6th - Cruising the North Sea

October 7th - Edinburgh, Scotland - 8.00am-6.00pm
