Feature for Cruising News & Pictorial

In October 2010 I was lucky enough to attend the naming ceremony in Southampton of Cunard’s Queen Elizabeth to cover the event for Cruising News & Pictorial magazine. The Queen was on hand to christen the ship which carries her name. After formally naming the ship the Queen pressed the button that sent a bottle of Cunard’s own private label Graves Rothschild smashing against the bow as streamers and trumpet fanfare filled the air. I was extremely lucky to snag a front row seat to watch the formalities. You can read my article about the day below.
