Cunard Queens to meet in New York

Date Posted: 28 Dec 2007
Category:
Queen Mary 2, Queen Elizabeth 2 and Queen Victoria rendezvous at New York Harbour.

The event promises to be momentous as it will be the only occasion that the three sister ships will sail together out of the harbour as Queen Elizabeth 2 is set to retire from active duty later next year.

A firework display will mark the occasion when the liners meet and sail past the Statue of Liberty.

"This is an historic occasion for Cunard and New York, marking the only time that the three ships will be together...ever. More history will be made as our grand dame Queen Elizabeth 2 departs on her 26th and final World Cruise and Queen Victoria will depart on her maiden World Cruise," said Carol Marlow, president of Cunard Cruises.

The best locations for witnessing the event - which will take place on January 13th 2008 - are suggested to be Robert F Wagner Junior Park, Battery Park, The Esplanade and Hudson River Park.

Upon her retirement, Queen Elizabeth 2 will enter into service as a floating hotel off Dubai.

"I booked my first ever cruise on Tuesday 5th September 2017. After lengthy searching and much deliberation we booked through Iglu. So far, I am incredibly happy I booked with Iglu. This being our first cruise Debi proved very helpful. I was [also] very impressed with the level of assistance offered by Connie. She answered my questions and put my mind at rest. I am very impressed with all aspects of dealing with Iglu and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all your support. "

"Leighanne has been excellent dealing with my various queries this year. She has been kind and informative and obtained what i think is a good deal for me in October. She is persistent and very informative, so even when my 1st deal fell through I felt confident enough to approach her for this present Crystal cruise...”
