Joke from "Dad's Army", related to ocean liners

Why did the Submarine blush?

Because it saw Queen Mary's bottom.  (My photo taken during last month's cruise)

Yep, IMO it's one so bad it's funny.

BTW, aside from the joke, it is a really nice photo!

We stay on the Queen Mary before our Panama Canal transit cruise in December. It was remarkable and the history fascinating. I highly recommend it for anyone sailing out of Long Beach.

Haw, good picture. This is one of us there, just before our first cruise on the Fair Princess, 27 years ago. We stayed in the Mary for two nights before embarking on Princess. Disney ran the Queen Mary Hotel then and a Spruce Goose visit was part of package if you stayed overnight. We really loved it. Lots to do there then, not sure about today though.


Thanks for sharing this. Where did that first cruise on the Fair Princess go to?

I think that plan looks great. Would be nice to have more in that area and also to get more funds for the QM. I was there during a storm and there was water dripping inside the ship from several areas. It certainly does need a lot of work.
