“We are excited to celebrate the royal wedding with our guests on board all three Cunard ships,” said Josh Leibowitz, senior vice president, Cunard North America.
“We are thrilled to honor this special moment in time, and to commemorate Cunard’s longstanding special relationship with the Royal Family.”
Guests on all three ships will have the opportunity to toast the happy couple from all over the world with passengers on flagship ocean liner Queen Mary 2 will be sailing on one of her signature transatlantic voyages, heading towards the UK as they celebrate the royal wedding.
Those on Queen Elizabeth will be in St. Petersburg, Russia, and Queen Victoria passengers will be in Portree, Scotland.
Cunard has strong ties to the Royal Family, naming its ships after several matriarchal figureheads.
The Queen has launched and named four Cunard ships and Her Majesty is the only person who has been present at the launch of all three ships named Queen Elizabeth– the first in 1938, QE2 in 1967 and Queen Elizabeth in 2010.
The wedding will take place in St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle at 12pm and there are rumours that Prince Harry and Meghan will honeymoon in Namibia.
