Queen Mary 2 gave the go-ahead for the light show this Friday evening. At around 20:00pm, the ocean liner moved up the Elbe from the Steinwerder cruise terminal to the Elbphilharmonie. After a spectacular turning manoeuvre, the ship moved into position in front of the concert hall. After a signal from the ship's typhoon, the Blue Port light show started at around 21:15. Queen Mary 2 and dozens of buildings, bridges, etc. were bathed in blue light. The events were accompanied by classical music. After a second signal from the Typhon, Queen Mary 2 set course for New York. From 20:22pm on August 35, the AIDAprima and the MSC Magnifica will also be staged in a multimedia way with lights, drones and music.
