It’s been another quiet week, which explains the absence of posts. But today we have some news. First up is today’s ‘Cunard 3 Queens’ arrival into Southampton. I gather that they gathered in Lisbon and sailed together from there to Southampton where they arrived this morning. It’s all related to QM2’s tenth birthday and there’s […]

Cunard have published details of their 175th anniversary celebrations next year. There are going to be a number of events, including a re-creation of their first-ever voyage from Liverpool to Halifax, Nova Scotia, which will be done by Queen Mary 2 (methinks not an absolutely accurate re-creation, then….). You can finds the details of all […]

Well, trying to. I had planned to be there on 13 July when the three Cunard Queens were in port together (for the second time this summer). I’d booked a hotel and train tickets (for which I bought a Senior Railcard! – now I do feel old) but in the event I didn’t go. When […]

Second, another internet acquaintance lives in (or near) Olden, in Norway, and regularly takes pictures of ships calling there and at Geiranger. Here are […]

Cunard Jubilee – will it rain?

Just over 24 hours until the three Queens are in Southampton to celebrate Her Majesty’s Jubilee, and at the moment the weather forecast is not looking good. Heavy rain is forecast for the late morning, afternoon and evening, although it might stop in time for the gathering in Southampton docks at 10pm and the sailaway […]

3 Queens x 2

I’ve rather missed this one – or rather ‘these ones’…. I posted almost four years ago about the meeting of the 3 Cunard Queens in Southampton. At that time the 3 Queens were QE2, QM2 and Queen Victoria. This was an unexpected meeting – QE2 was supposed to be at sea, but some emergency remedial […]
