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.
Several cruise ships and ocean liners were with us in Lyme Bay during the pandemic in 2020/21 when they sheltered in the bay unable to sail the seas with passengers. These outstanding photographs taken by David Caunter conjure up many emotions, the ships looked majestic and were wonderful to look at; however, there was a sadness that they could not cruise around the world at this time.
