Cunard Ships To Show Royal Wedding At Sea

On the day that Prince William and Kate Middleton chart a course for a lifetime of happiness as husband and wife, the passengers aboard Cunard’s three ships– Queen Mary 2, Queen Victoria and Queen Elizabeth–can witness every romantic moment in regal style.

The wedding ceremony of the century will be broadcast live in each ship’s Royal Court Theatre on April 29, 2011. More than 1,000 royal watchers can be accommodated in the theatre of the Queen Mary 2, which will set sail in New York on April 26, 2011 for a seven-night Transatlantic Crossing. Additional wedding enthusiasts can watch history unfold in the ship’s Planetarium and lecture room.

Britophiles on board the Queen Elizabeth can watch the future King exchange vows as their vessel heads for Southampton. More than 800 passengers can gather in the luxury liner’s Royal Court Theatre, while the same number of wedding watchers can witness the historic event in the Royal Court Theatre of the Queen Victoria, which will be floating along the Mediterranean sea on the special day.

“Cunard is a company with an enviable heritage and unparalleled links to the Royal family – our ships were named either by Her Majesty The Queen or by her apparent successor, HRH The Duchess of Cornwall,” stated Peter Shanks, the president of Cunard. “It follows then that our passengers are likely to have an above average interest in the pageantry of a Royal wedding. We intend to cater for that and ensure they do not miss one minute.

“Royal weddings don’t happen that often and with our impeccable Royal connections we intend to ensure that our red ensign ships lead the British merchant marine in marking this momentous day.”

Following the grandeur as the Prince makes Kate Middleton his Princess bride, passengers can toast to the happy couple with champagne during a dinner featuring a commemorative menu.
