The Queen of New Westminster was built in 1964, in Victoria. Her first route of operation was the Horseshoe Bay-Departure Bay route. In 1973, she was streched and received a refit featuring a new reataurant. In 1991, ten years after her sister ships, Queen of New Westminster was lifted and re-engined. Once the Queen of New Westminster returned to service, her engines caused vibrations that put her out of service again. It cost $200 000 to remedy the problem. Her upper car deck has a higher clearance than her sisters (Queens of Victoria, Vancouver, Saanich & Esquimalt). In 2007, she went for a major 56 million refit. It was supposed to last 8 months but lasted more than 14 months. This refit included: new interior design, new layout and new seawest lounge, and a few more things. Engine work and steel plating replacements was also performed. The Queen of New Westminster's interior is looking immaculate! Sorry for not filming the starboard side of the upper sun deck but it is identical to the port upper sun deck.. Recorded on August 30, 2009. Copyright theFerryTraveller Productions
