HIS ROYAL HIGHNESS THE DUKE OF EDINBURGH TO VISIT CUNARD`S QUEEN MARY 2

Cunard Line is honoured to announce that His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh will make a return visit to Queen Mary 2 in her homeport of Southampton on Friday, 9 May 2014 and attend a reception and lunch being held to celebrate the flagship’s 10th anniversary in service.

During his time on board, His Royal Highness will visit several behind-the-scenes areas and meet with various crew who perform different roles on the ship. Further details of the 9 May visit will be announced shortly.

“We are delighted and honoured that His Royal Highness has agreed to visit Queen Mary 2 and take part in our flagship’s 10th anniversary, having been present at her entry into service,” said David Dingle, CEO of Cunard Line. “For all those involved, this will surely be another memorable occasion in Cunard’s 175-year history.”

The most famous passenger ocean liner in the world, and for 10 years now the flagship of the Cunard fleet, Queen Mary 2 was named by Her Majesty The Queen at Southampton in January 2004 during the most spectacular event of its kind ever. His Royal Highness was also in attendance.

Since then, Queen Mary 2 has undertaken a total of 419 voyages including over 200 Transatlantic Crossings, called at 182 ports in 60 countries and carried over 1.3 million guests.
