Cunard continues to celebrate 175 years of service and paid special attention to Australia in recent week. Two of the three “Queens” shared Sydney Harbor early in March as the Queen Victoria and Queen Mary 2 crossed paths. The ships departed amidst great fanfare for their respective itineraries that night. Angus Struthers, Cunard’s marketing director, commented during a related press conference that Australia has passed German as the third largest source of passengers for the line. Fittingly Cunard also paid homage to ANZAC (Australian and New Zealander)
casualties of the disastrous Gallipoli invasion from World War I aboard the Queen Elizabeth April 24th.
