Queen Mary 2 175th Anniversary Crossing follows Britannia


Cunard’s Queen Mary 2 will take its 175th Anniversary Crossing in a celebratory manner on July 2 – 14, 2015. The celebrations will start with an event inside Liverpool’s Anglican Cathedral, which will tell Cunard’s story with both song and word during a concert titled “Triumph of a Great Tradition”. There’s two concerts planned thanks to such large numbers expected to attend.

Queen Mary 2 following Cunard’s Britannia route to the day – we also hear that QM2 will sail from Liverpool on the very day Britannia did 175 years earlier, and those onboard will get to experience the same first voyage many years later. The route takes in Halifax and Boston, and then finally calling at New York.

It’s the moment Queen Mary 2 leaves Liverpool that will bring in thousands of onlookers. This event will be very emotional for some and one that people will want to witness thanks to the history, and of course fireworks closing the celebration.

If you are one of those onboard Queen Mary 2 during this special crossing, then you will benefit from an amazing schedule that promises specialist speakers, gala dinners, and an amazing 175th Anniversary Ball.
