RMS Queen Mary 2 is a British transatlantic ocean liner. She has served as the flagship of Cunard Line since succeeding Queen Elizabeth 2 in 2004. As of 2017, Queen Mary 2 is the only purpose- built passenger ship designed as an ocean liner, as opposed to a cruise ship.
MS Queen Victoria (QV) is a Vista-class cruise ship operated by the Cunard Line and is named after the British Monarch Queen Victoria. At 90,049 GT, she is the smallest of Cunard's ships in operation. Her facilities include seven restaurants, thirteen bars, three swimming pools, a ballroom and a theatre.
These cruise ships in Lyme Bay have been with us during the pandemic in 2020 and are still with us as the pandemic continues into 2021. These outstanding photographs taken by David Caunter conjure up many emotions, the ships look majestic and are wonderful to look at; however, there is a sadness that they cannot cruise around the world at this time.
