Honoring a Retired Queen

Cunard’s Royal Rendezvous are usually quite special events for the line. On those occasions, two (or on very rare occasions, three) of their ships meet and salute and sometimes even sail together. Because they are so special to Cunard, they make an event out of it, and it becomes special for the passengers on the ships, and especially for those on shore witnessing the spectacle that’s created.

One of those meetings will take place shortly, but one with a bit more meaning. On February 5, Queen Elizabeth is going to meet the now-retired Queen Mary in Long Beach Harbor.

Details appeared in the January 28 edition of Cruise News Daily.
