Passengers on all three ships will have the opportunity to toast the happy couple from all over the world whether they be on Queen Mary 2 will sailing on one of her signature transatlantic voyages towards the UK, on Queen Elizabeth in St Petersburg or Queen Victoria in Portree, Scotland.

Among the celebrations will be a Royal Wedding Afternoon Tea

  • Screening of the Royal Wedding
  • Royal Wedding Afternoon Tea with specially created cakes including the Union Jack Butterfly, Chocolate Crown, Victoria Wedding Cake along with traditional finger sandwiches, scones, clotted cream and jams

    “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 honour this special moment in time, and to commemorate Cunard’s longstanding special relationship with the Royal Family.”
