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.

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?

This is the cruise ship Queen Victoria, bathed in rather startling purple light. We get a lot of different cruise ships in Sydney, but this purple look is not common.
