The Queen Mary 2 and a slightly dingy harbour

Queen Mary 2

I debated with myself about whether or not to post this photo - it's not the most appealing side of Table Bay harbour, and I do have other prettier photos of the beautiful Queen Mary 2, that you may prefer to see.

Unfortunately, due to the size of the Queen Mary 2, this is one of the few places that she's able to dock. The pier at the Table Bay hotel is in a far nicer area, but the world's largest ocean liner is simply too big and is thus forced to dock at this unsightly commercial pier.

Rumour has it that Cape Town's preparing to extend the harbour and build a proper terminal specifically for passenger ships. I'm not sure where they're going to build this alleged terminal, but I'd imagine that it would be closer to the V&A Waterfront than this pier which is way over in the unsightly commercial section.
