I've always dug timelapse footage and I don't know why. Often times set in city streets where one can see people skittering around like ants, the method provides a certain macro-view of a place. I often think of the technique used in Koyaanisqatsi's "The Grid" where the head and tail lights of cars zipping in and out of the city recollected red and white blood cells flowing in and out of a human heart. It's rare to see good quality timelapse on water though, much less the Queen Mary on a run from NYC to the Caribbean.
Sit back and enjoy some majesty. And if you can, watch the HD version.
