Cunard’s Queen Mary 2 And HMS Queen Elizabeth Meet In NY Harbour
ocean liner Queen Mary 2 had a
rare meeting in New York Harbour yesterday with British Royal Navy
aircraft carrier HMS Queen Elizabeth
during the carrier’s first visit to the U.S.
“Luxury cruise line Cunard is a company known for its rich history and significant role in both World Wars. Having deep roots in both England and the U.S., it’s an honour for the brand to welcome the Royal Navy carrier to its U.S. homeport of Brooklyn, New York,” according to a statement from the company.
After saluting the aircraft carrier, Queen Mary 2 sailed out to sea to begin a seven-night Transatlantic crossing to England, the line’s signature voyage.
