Cunard and Passengers Remember Lusitania

Today is a somber anniversary for Cunard. It is the 100th anniversary of the sinking of Cunard’s Lusitania by a German torpedo. Queen Victoria operated a special sailing this week to commemorate the event. Aboard were many families of those lost on May 7, 1915. At 3:30am this morning, Queen Victoria stopped over the wreck off the Irish coast while Cunard officials and families dropped wreaths and flowers in the sea.

Also aboard was one very special “passenger” who was there on that fateful day a hundred years ago.

The complete story appeared in the May 7 edition of Cruise News Daily.
