Cruise Line

Queen Mary 2 passing the Sydney Harbour Bridge

Strictly speaking, the Cunard ships are ocean liners rather than cruise liners. But let’s not quibble! Here they are all seen in Sydney and all at night.

Queen Elizabeth passing the Sydney Opera House

The part that was lost in the square crop reads “The Most Famous Ocean Liners in the World”

I’ve read that a fourth ship will join the Cunard fleet in 2022. I’m curious to see how they update this poster, which is itself a modern version of a classic Cunard poster c1914 that featured Mauretania, Berengaria and Aquitania. And which queen’s name will the new ship bear?

Random Fridays: Queen Elizabeth

Queen Elizabeth in Sydney

Possibly not the Queen Elizabeth you were expecting? 😉

Apologies if you expected a photo of the UK monarch! This is the cruise ship Queen Elizabeth, seen in Sydney in April this year. A friend and I have booked a one-week cruise on this ship for March next year — bring on the bubbly!
