At midday on 25 May, Cunard’s current fleet will become the largest ships ever to sail in formation on the Mersey when all three Queens perform a meticulously planned series of manoeuvres to mark the company’s 175thanniversary and to salute Liverpool, its spiritual home, where the company began in 1840. The ships will perform a ‘river dance’ against the backdrop of Liverpool’s Three Graces, a world heritage site which includes the Cunard Building, the company’s headquarters from 1916-1967. Hundreds of thousands of spectators are expected to gather on both sides of the river to watch.
Those who cannot attend but are interested in viewing this historic moment can view a live satellite feed, from12:30-14:00 pm (GMT), of a 90 minute programme of live helicopter footage of the Three Queens sailing in formation, live and pre-recorded interviews from the previous day’s build-up and live crowd reaction. The programme will be streamed live via http://live.cunard.com/.
High resolution photographs, including aerial stills of the Three Queens ‘river dance’, will be freely available to download from Cunard’s official image gallery. Photographs will be added, and the library will be updated throughout the day, and can be accessed via www.cunard3queens.com.
