New York welcomes three ocean liners ahead of Sydney’s Royal Rendezvous.
New York City skyline was the glittering backdrop for the first meeting of Cunard’s three Queens – Queen Mary 2, Queen Victoria and the new Queen Elizabeth – on the Hudson River last Friday.
It was the first time all three ships had been together at the same time and thousands of onlookers lined the shore as chartered boats dotted the surrounding waters. In true maritime tradition, a New York City fire boat sprayed the fleet before a 20-minute fireworks show.
Queen Mary 2 and the new Queen Elizabeth are set to rendezvous in Sydney Harbour on February 23 during Queen Elizabeth’s maiden visit to Australia.
