NEW YORK, Jan. 14, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — See video from Golin Harris for Cunard at:
Riding the wave of America’s love affair with all things Royal, Cunard’s flagship, Queen Mary 2, Queen Victoria and Queen Elizabeth, the youngest fleet at sea, sail into the New York Harbor. The three luxury cruise ships make a historic rendezvous at the Statue of Liberty. The meeting of the Queens marks only the second time in Cunard’s 171-year history that all three of the company’s ships have met simultaneously. The first Cunard Royal Rendezvous took place in 2008 celebrating Queen Victoria’s maiden call to New York. Thousands of travel and maritime enthusiasts are joined by admirers gathered at ideal viewing locations to bid “Bon Voyage” to the majestic fleet of Queens and see the spectacular 21-gun fireworks salute and dazzling Grucci fireworks show. Set against the backdrop of Cunard Line’s Queen Elizabeth maiden call to New York, cruise industry leaders and city tourism officials gathered to highlight the region’s positive tourism and cruise outlook. Along with this grand celebration in New York Harbor, as a salute to the Cunard Royal Rendezvous, the Empire State Building was illuminated in Cunard’s regal color of red. Footage includes b-roll of soundbites, press conference, and Royal Rendezvous with fireworks.
