We Are Cunard
Posted in: Ship's Company
Firstly, thanks again for all messages and comments especially from those who I have sailed with and from those of you around the Cunard world. It’s another very busy week for Cunard, so I’ll start the blog with our new feature from last week. Here’s: “This week in Cunard’s History” for the week of the 3rd October to the 9th October:
October 4 2001
On QE2 Captain R.W. Warwick (who of course became Commodore) performed the wedding ceremony of his daughter Rebecca in Boston
October 5 1994
QE2 rescues three seaman who are transferred from fishing the vessel ‘Gail Ann’ in Mid Atlantic
This week it’s my pleasure to introduce our first of many guest Bloggers. QE2’s Entertainment Director – Warren Smith has reported on how things are progressing with QE2’s Farewell to the British Isles Voyage in my special guest area of this blog. But I am busy building my database and I have to tell you it’s fascinating to read. I have also found some comments on the Cunard website from Carol Marlow, our President and Managing Director which may answer some of your questions about QE2 and her life at Cunard.
Keep the comments and postings coming in and I look forward to sharing more of the Cunard world with you next week, where we’ll have information from the Tandem Transatlantic Crossing of Queen Mary 2 and QE2 as she crosses to New York for the final time.
Cheers for now- Alastair
