Queen Mary 2 protest

Queen Mary 2Some passengers on the Queen Mary 2 are threatening a sit-in when the cruise ship reaches port in Brazil to protest a last-minute change in itinerary. The world’s largest and most expensive ocean liner left New York on 15th January 2006 and was scheduled to arrive in Los Angeles on 22nd February 2006. Carrying more than 2,500 passengers, it hit the side of a shipping channel during a stop in Port Everglades on 18th January, damaging a motor and reducing its speed. The cruise cut stops in Barbados, St. Kitts and Salvador, Brazil, to make up for lost time.
