Liverpool to Celebrate QM2's Birthday

Cunard's Queen Mary 2 will be spending her fifth birthday in Liverpool, marking her maiden call there. The event will occur on October 20.

Surprisingly, until the 20th, QM2 has never called on another English port other than her homeport of Southampton. The visit also has some historical roots. Liverpool was Cunard's headquarters for almost 130 years before it was moved to Southampton.

A fireworks display is planned to celebrate the visit at 10:50pm, just before QM2 departs at 11pm.
