No, she is not being stretched again but P found this on Mail on Line today. Why the Mail should show an old video I'm not sure but it is interesting to watch if you haven't already seen it.

Quick search and it seems to be trending on the internet, someone must have posted it on social media and its been picked up on a couple of news sites...


"The actual work took place in 2007, but MK Timelapse only released the video - which has since gone viral - earlier this month."

It’s a fascinating video. We are travelling on Balmoral in July and now I will be trying to find the new part. :geek:

I suppose it takes quite a lot of planning to decide what they're going to put in the section they insert. The whole scope, I suppose, is to add cabins but I wonder whether this means that it makes navigating
your way about the ship more difficult.
