The Cunard story in Liverpool's Anglican Cathedral

The Cunard story is like no other and on 4 July 2015 in the Anglican Cathedral in Liverpool that story will be told through word and song during two identical celebratory concerts that will be attended by all passengers on Queen Mary 2’s 2-14 July ‘175th Anniversary Crossing’. The ‘Triumph of a Great Tradition’ concerts will celebrate the magnificent heritage of Cunard as well as the fleet today which is among the youngest and most-highly-rated afloat.

Queen Mary 2 will be berthed in Liverpool on the exact day that Cunard's first ship, Britannia, left the city 175 years earlier. Later that day Queen Mary 2 will follow in Britannia’s wake and recreate that epic first voyage calling at Halifax and Boston (just as Britannia did) before arriving in New York. The departure from Liverpool promises to be emotional, spectacular and unforgettable as large crowds and fireworks will bring a day of celebration to a close. Passengers on the crossing will also enjoy a special programme of events to mark Cunard’s 175th and there will be gala dinners, specialist speakers and an Anniversary Ball in the ship's Queens Room.

Fares for the 12-night voyage from Southampton to New York, 2-14 July 2015, start from £2,539 per person for an inside cabin and from £3,199 per person for a balcony cabin, and include the return flight from New York to the UK and  complimentary on board spending money of $105 per person.
