Cunard Three Queens

I will be on Merseyside on Monday 24th May, the day of the Cunard Three Queens event. I didn't get tickets for the Ferry cruise. Anyone know the programme for the day? Any tips as to best place to be at what time? I have a small baby so can't spend the whole day ship watching...

It will be packed, maybe a million visitors,roads into New Brighton will be blocked off and park and ride availible. you will be lucky to get any where near to parking at Seacombe. I would think it will be chaotic.

Your Missus is dead right. The three boats left are Birkenhead Ferries (Mountwood, Woodchurch and Overchurch) but now running with Wallasey names (Royal Iris Of The Mersey, Snowdrop and Royal Daffodil, which is sadly in perminent lay up)

Cunard is owned by Carnival Corporation & plc, which though listed in both the UK and the USA is actually very much an American company. The ships are registered in Bermuda, which conveniently has the red ensign as it's flag. Cunard is Carnival's upmarket British brand. They also own P & O Cruises (but not the other parts of P & O), whose ships are also registered in Bermuda, except for the new "Britannia" which was registered in the UK largely to avoid embarrassing the Queen, who named it at Southampton last month. Expect it to go Bermudan soon. Carnival has many brands including Holland America, Princess Cruises and Costa (cruises, not coffee!).
