Tonight’s the night! Cunard’s 3 Queens meet in NYC

Posted by Anita Dunham-Potter On January - 13 - 2008

Cunard’s Three Queens (Image courtesy of Cunard) The three Cunard Queen ships — the Queen Mary 2, Queen Elizabeth 2 and the new Queen Victoria will meet in the waters off Lower Manhattan tonight, with the Statue of Liberty as a backdrop, and fireworks marking the once-in-a-lifetime event.

The fireworks show, illuminating the rendezvous of the three grand ships twinkling in the winter darkness of New York Harbor, is scheduled for 7:30 p.m.

This is the only time the three Queen ships will ever meet. The QE2 will be decommissioned in the fall and turned into a floating five-star hotel in the United Arab Emirates.

Those lucky enough to be in New York City tonight can view the ships from numerous viewing locations including Battery Park on Manhattan’s southern shoreline; Robert F. Wagner Jr. Park, overlooking the Hudson River; The Esplanade, running the length of Battery Park City along the Hudson River; and Hudson River Park, which extends for five miles along the Manhattan shoreline from Battery Place to West 59th Street.
