Queen Mary 2 sets sail again after repairs

MIAMI, FL, United States (UPI) -- Queen Mary 2, the world`s largest cruise ship, left Miami Thursday, two days after hitting a sea wall and damaging part of its propulsion system.
Operating well on three its four engines, the ship was cleared to resume its 38-day voyage around South America, scheduled to end Feb. 22 in Los Angeles.
Even while the ship is at sea, the Coast Guard will continue to examine how the luxury liner hit an underwater channel as it tried to leave Port Everglades Tuesday afternoon.
'We have determined the vessel is safe for voyage and for the passengers, but the cause and the reason and who`s at fault is still under investigation,' a spokesman told the Miami Herald.
