What’s Large and Purple and Just Fits under the Sydney Harbor Bridge?

No, it’s not a 90,000-ton grape. It’s Cunard’s Queen Victoria celebrating International Women’s Day.

The liner is in Sydney as part of its 120-day world cruise, and as dusk fell last night the ship began to turn purple (the recognized color for women’s rights) and wore a 60-meter-long banner along her hull with this year’s campaign message #PledgeForParity.

Details appeared in the March 8 edition of Cruise News Daily.
