Cunard’s Three Queens Celebrations in Liverpool

It has been a while since we’ve posted, and oh my! it’s been a busy two weeks and still is! but luckily i managed to squeeze in some time with friends and family to relax a bit which has been fantastic and i finally get some time to write.

Over the long weekend, i visited the docks to watch the Cunard’s Three Queens Celebrations which lasted three days. The Queen Mary 2, the Queen Elizabeth and the Queen Victoria put on a great show to mark the 175th anniversary of Cunard. On Bank Holiday Monday night, i stayed for the Amazing Graces’ light show and firework display which was beautiful. It got pretty cold though!! The moment the light show started, i felt it suddenly got extra windy at the pier.. for a moment i thought, now this can’t be special effects can it?! And no, it wasn’t. That’s the thing i struggle with..  the weather. One moment it’s gloomy, then it’s sunny, then it’s gloomy again or raining and super windy, the same applies with the temperature! Maybe I’ve just been away too long and used to temperatures of 30+ degrees..

Anyway, apparently there was around 1.3 million visitors in Liverpool to catch a glimpse of it all! I think that is the first time i have seen the city so packed in my life!liverpool city centre packed

The first to arrive – Queen Mary 2, the other two arrived the day after. What a beautiful day!three queens queen mary 2
