Last meeting of the Three Cunard Queens

The Three grand luxury Cunard liners have met in the port of Southampton for the first and final time.

Cunard’s “Queens” consisting of Queen Mary 2, Queen Victoria and Queen Elizabeth 2 all lined up in Southampton for the meeting.

What was special about this meeting?  It’s the first time all three queens have ever been together at their home port.  Ironically, it’s also the last time, as the Queen Elizabeth 2 will retire this year, and undergo a refit before being moved to Dubai to become a floating hotel and museum.

Southampton residents and fans from around the country took part in the celebration, with fans arriving hours before the meeting to obtain the best vantage points, to view the proceedings.

To any person skeptical of the importance of the cruise industry and its value both to Southampton and to Great Britain as a whole, need only glance at the passion and splendor of the event to realise the cruise industry is a serious player in the UK holiday business.
