3 Queens Liverpool – Day 3

Events, Ships 26 May 15

This was it. The big moment when the 3 Cunard liners Queen Victoria, Queen Elizabeth and Queen Mary 2 all sailed down the Mersey. I’ve been waiting to see this for years. It’s what I’ve been working towards over 8 years at the Cruise Terminal. Iconic¬†moments. History. The biggest maritime event I’ve seen in my lifetime on the Mersey. I imagine we won’t see anything like it for another 25 years when it’s Cunard’s 200th birthday. I’ll be 61 by then.

The day exceeded my expectations. The Red Arrows! Seeing the Biennial’s Dazzle Ferry in amongst it all. So many lovely little bits. Here’s some photos of them.
