Random Fridays: The Commodore’s Cufflinks

Spare propeller blades for Queen Mary 2

Graceful metal curve against a blue sky — but what the heck is it?

Yesterday morning, my first cruise on Queen Mary 2 ended. A short five-night voyage, we left Sydney, visited Port Arthur and Hobart (both in Tasmania, and both maiden calls for this ship) and returned to Sydney. During my days of unabashed over-indulgence, I noticed these metal structures on the foredeck of Deck 7, and had NO idea what they were. Judging from the need to post the notice below, it would seem I’m not the only person who was puzzled!

    Wow. I’d never have guessed that they were spare propellers. They really look very sculptural. The Commodore’s cufflinks is brilliant! 🙂
