For most the sight of just one Cunard liner is enough to amaze. Imagine, then, the spectacle on 13th January, 2011, when not one but three Cunard liners met in New York. Cunard's flagship liner Queen Mary 2, Queen Elizabeth and Queen Victoria sailed alongside each other under the shadow of the Statue of Liberty, and made it only the second time in Cunard's 171 year history that the three Queens have been docked at the same time in New York. Crowds flocked, despite the freezing weather, to watch a suitably regal send-off, including a 21-gun firework salute, while each liner made it's way onto their respecive voyage.

To celebrate the 'royal' rendevous of the three Cunard ocean liners, we have teamed up with Cunard to produce this official and limited edition commemorative cover, which has been carried on the Queen Mary 2 for the rendevous. Limited editions have been signed by Captain Paul Wright, who captained Queen Mary 2, and have been carried on board Queen Mary 2 on the rendevous.  Features a single RMS Queen Mary 2 stamp, postmarked on the day of the rendevouz (13th May, 2011). Doubled with a US stamp and cachet, and features a "Carried Aboard Queen Mary 2" cachet.

Queen Mary 2

Queen Mary 2 is the mopst magnificent ocean liner ever built. Her every detail harkens to the Golden Age of Ocean Travel, while providing on of the most modern travel experiences on Earth.

Opulent public areas, extravagand dining rooms, ballrooms, theatres, lounges... even the only Planetarium at sea. But words can only do such a lady so much justice. For to truly revel in the grandeur that is Queen Mary 2, you must sail with her.

In January 2011, Queen Victoria crosses the Atlantic to New York in tandem with the Queen Elizabeth, arriving on 13 Jan when they meet uo with Queen Mary 2 before the Queen Elizabeth embarks on her Maiden World Voyage in early 2011.
