Hamburg, November 6, 2006 - The world's largest ocean liner, the QUEEN MARY 2, will arrive in Hamburg on November 12, 2006 at Blohm + Voss Repair GmbH, a company of ThyssenKrupp Marine Systems, to be docked in dry dock ELBE 17 at about 21.25 h.

In the course of her previous yard period in the time from May 6 to 10, 2006, one of the four engine pods, a so-called Mermaid Pod, which had been damaged when leaving Port Everglades / Florida, was removed to be repaired by Blohm + Voss Repair. From November 12 to 17, 2006, the pod weighing approx. 270 t will be reinstalled. In addition to this, all balconies will be provided with a sprinkler system and the bridge wings will be extended by 2 meters.
