In the early morning hours of 17 November 2019 the Queen Elizabeth passenger vessel docked at the passenger terminal of the Namibian Ports Authority. The vessel that was carrying 1915 passengers and 998 crew members came from Santa Cruz de Tenerife and made a 9 hour stop at the Port of Walvis Bay, giving the passengers a chance to disembark the vessel and visit local tourist attractive places in and around Walvis Bay.

The nine year old vessel is sailing under the flag of Bermuda and is heading to the port of Cape Town in South Africa.
