This Is Cunard

Today I have the honour (spelt appropriately enough in English) to show you the video of the Queen Elizabeth, it’s entitled “Now Things Are Really Getting Exciting.” Cunard makes brilliant videos and this is certainly one of their very best and gives you the first ever look inside the Queen Elizabeth.

I remember the first time I ever saw the Concord. I was with my Dad at Heathrow Airport and  nearly wet myself with excitement. I ran around the observation deck, clutching at my private parts with one hand, pointing with the other and screaming at the top of my lungs “there it is, there it is.” And wherever a Cunard ship goes there are similar reactions from thousands of people.

Yes, there are bigger ships. But the first time you see a Cunard ship one that bears the name Queen Elizabeth, the Union Jack flying you’ll know what I’m on about. This is not a ship you need to see…….. It’s a ship you simply have to see.

Hi, I’m John, and this is my blog. So please don’t mistake my opinions — or those of my dear friends, fans or commenters — for those of Carnival Cruise Line or Carnival Corporation. My apologies in advance for anything I may say that upsets you, but this disclaimer covers Carnival and puts the blame directly on me………….. bugger.
