Cunard's Three Queens to Salute Her Majesty the Queen on the Occasion of her Diamond Jubilee...

CUNARD’S THREE QUEENS TO SALUTE 
HER MAJESTY THE QUEEN ON THE OCCASION 
OF HER DIAMOND JUBILEE


Cunard Line will celebrate Her Majesty The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee with a unique Three Queens event on 5 June 2012, the final day of the extended bank holiday Jubilee celebration.  Her Majesty has long been associated with Cunard, being the only person to have attended the naming of all three Cunard Elizabeths, beginning in 1938.   

This will be the first time that the three ships of the Cunard fleet – the three largest Cunarders ever built – will have been seen arriving and departing together in formation at their home port of Southampton.   

Queen Elizabeth, Queen Victoria and Queen Mary 2 will approach the port soon after first light on Tuesday 5 June, sailing in single file up the Solent, with a flotilla of small boats expected to welcome them in.  

As Queen Elizabeth and Queen Victoria tie up at their berths, Queen Mary 2 will follow on, turning in the upper swinging ground and then passing each ship in turn, with crew lining the foredeck of all three vessels, and the ships’ whistles sounding in salute of Her Majesty’s Jubilee.  

Events will be happening throughout the day, to create both an outstanding passenger experience and a fitting commemoration of Her Majesty’s reign.  The celebrations will culminate in an evening spectacular where all three ships will brought within close proximity of each other, and a fusillade of fireworks and special effects will light up the evening sky beyond them.

Queen Mary 2 will then lead Queen Elizabeth and Queen Victoria in single file down the Solent as all three ships set out on their celebratory Jubilee voyages.

Further details of the day’s events will be released by Cunard in due course.
