CND Headlines - A Royal Occasion

If there's one thing you can say about Cunard, they know how to design an impressive naming ceremony.

A little more than three years ago, Her Majesty The Queen named QM2. So expectations are high for the events surrounding Queen Victoria's ceremony, and today the bar was set higher.

Today, Cunard Line announced that Their Royal Highnesses, The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall will attend the ceremony in Southampton on December 10 to mark the introduction of Queen Victoria. During the ceremony, The Duchess of Cornwall will officially name the ship.

Of course, since most of our readers are American, and in case you didn't pick up on it, we are speaking of Prince Charles and his wife Camilla, as they are popularly known here.

Details are in today's edition of Cruise News Daily.
