All three of Cunard’s Queens, Queen Mary 2, Queen Elizabeth and Queen Victoria, visited Southampton together last Tuesday to celebrate the Diamond Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II, in possibly the biggest such event outside London. On the same day, the line announced that it is looking for more first-timers and wants more UK agents to work with it. In four weeks time, it will be the turn of P&O Cruises, which will bring all seven of its ships to Southampton on Tuesday 3rd July to celebrate its 175th Anniversary. Elsewhere, Carnival Corp & PLC has announced a plan to revive cruising to the north shore of the Dominican Republic. Meanwhile from Lisbon comes news of the death of Classic International Cruises founder George Potamianos. The line has also announced the charter of Athena to Germany’s Ambiente Kreuzfahrten for a late summer season of five cruises in 2013.
