The liner, which can accommodate over 2,500 passengers and 1,000 crew, arrived in the bay off Weymouth and Portland (Dorset, England) Sunday afternoon as QM2 remains in hibernation during the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
QM2 has been in the area for some time following her arrival back off the coast of England in April but is occasionally seen moving around because of the weather forecast and for maritime operations.
The liner set off on her most recent voyage on January 10, 2020, but disembarked all passengers in Fremantle (Perth, Western Australia) after Cunard Line cancelled all cruises.
The Queen Victoria ship sailed back to Southampton UK after an 8-hour stop in Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades, Florida) on March 17. She sailed back to England on April 17.
However, soon after arriving back, it emerged she was dealing with a Coronavirus outbreak, and all nonessential crew had been asked to remain in their staterooms for at least 2 weeks.
