Our Cunard Three Queens Weekend

Three Cunard 3 Queens heading towards Liverpool

Liverpool certainly knows how to welcome a cruise ship. There’s a party atmosphere at the dock whenever a ship is in town, with people from across the city making the trip to see the latest visitor from the high seas. Reasons vary, some have worked on the ships, some have been passengers and some are just plain curious. The arrival of the Cunard three Queens, Queen Mary 2, Queen Elizabeth and Queen Victoria on Bank Holiday Monday was clearly going to be a very special party. As big cruise ship fans, we decided to make the most of the occasion and join the fun.

Med Cruiser Goes Down Under!

PandO Pacific Dawn

During a visit to Australia, we forsook the Mediterranean for a one week cruise to Northern Queensland on P&O Australia’s Pacific Dawn. We boarded (eventually – not the slickest of operations) at Brisbane, travelling 1,800km north to Port Douglas via the ports of Airlie Beach and Yorkey’s Knob, near Cairns. It was our first cruise this year and reminded us, as ever, why we love to cruise.
