Queen Elizabeth Cruises on the Cunard’s New QE2 Cruise Ship
Queen Elizabeth Cruises is a website dedicated exclusively to the newest Cunard liner MS Queen Elizabeth cruise ship – the 2010 new-build for the Cunard Line, the third Cunard ship (by year built), but on the second position after the flagship RMS Queen Mary 2 – the world’s most famous of the most famous ocean liners.
Lots of people refer to the MS Queen Elizabeth cruise ship as “Queen Elizabeth 2 cruise ship” or cruise liner, and to its sailings as “Queen Mary 2 cruises” or the “QE2 cruises” abbreviation. There’s a reason for that, and there’s a some kind of well accepted “mutual misunderstanding”. “RMS Queen Elizabeth 2″ is the name of the old Cunard liner (1969-2008, when was acquired by Istithmar World investments) and to the name of the new Cunard liner “MS Queen Elizabeth” often is added the suffix ”2″ – for the ship being “the new Queen Elizabeth ship” – the second one in line, the successor. And while still on the subjects which could be titled “Queen Elizabeth Cruise Ships” and “The New Cunard Ship Name”, there are plans for the Royal Navy to introduce into service in 2016 a brand new aircraft carrier named “HMS Queen Elizabeth” – just as the famous Royal Nave battleship (operational 1913-1948) was named in honor of Queen Elizabeth I of England.
The new Queen Elizabeth cruise liner offers most affordable luxury ship cruises, and just like her 2 fleet mates Mary 2 and Victoria – she is a queen and mostly a Cunard liner signifying a brand name for the best classic British seafaring traditions and exceptional cruising experiences on a very big ocean liner, with more affluent clientele of middle-aged to older passengers who simply like so very much the Cunard Line’s aura of sophistication and style, the 2-class dining system, first-class amenities in very large staterooms, the pleasantly sweet ambiance of a high-class society club and the impeccable “Cunard White Star” service.
