Cruises 175 yeArs in the MAking Cunard will proudly celebrate its 175th anniversary in 2015 with some remarkable anniversary cruises and events. A selection of special cruises are available and these will be available for sale ahead of the main program to reflect the exceptional demand they are likely to receive.
To start these momentous celebrations, all three Queens will meet in Southampton on 3 May 2015 in a spectacular end to their World Cruises. This will be followed by the unprecedented sight of all three Cunard ships together at our spiritual home of Liverpool on 25 May – the first time ever the entire fleet has been on the Mersey. Liverpool is Cunard’s birthplace and was home to Cunard’s Head Office from 1839 to 1967 – the Cunard Building on the Pierhead remains one of the most significant buildings in the city and part of a World Heritage site. The people of Liverpool still have a great affection for all things Cunard, and the event promises to be hugely popular with residents and passengers alike.
In addition, Queen Victoria will call at Cobh to commemorate the sinking of the Lusitania on 7 May – a poignant journey that will involve ceremonies at the town’s memorial to mark this significant date in Cunard’s history. At the same time tribute will be paid to the 22 ships, and Cunard men, that were lost in the War.
The celebrations will continue in true Cunard style with Queen Mary 2 recreating the very first transatlantic crossing. She will leave Liverpool on 4 July – 175 years to the day that Britannia began her journey and will follow in her wake. After a westbound crossing, Halifax and then Boston will enthusiastically welcome the Cunard flagship – just as they did 175 years ago.
The Cunard 175th Anniversary Cruises will go on sale for all passengers on Friday 14 March 2014 at 9am.
