Two British Icons Meet in NYC

Two British icons had a royal meeting in New York Harbor today when Cunard's Queen Mary 2 crossed paths with the Royal Navy's new HMS Queen Elizabeth aircraft carrier.

It was the aircraft carrier's first visit to the United States. While it was launched in 2014, it was just commissioned last December. It has a displacement of 65,000 tons. (Queen Mary 2 has a displacement of 79,297.)

Details appeared in the October 26 issue of Cruise News Daily.
