CUNARDS THREE QUEENS DIAMOND JUBILEE CELEBRATION

5 JUNE 2012 SOUTHAMPTON


Cunard Line will celebrate Her Majestys Diamond Jubilee with a special event on Tuesday 5 June 2012, the final day of the extended bank holiday. For the first time, the three ships of the Cunard fleet will arrive in formation at their home port of Southampton, and with four key highlights, it is set to be a day of spectacular celebration. 1. Three Ships Arrival: 5.30am-6.15am
Queen Victoria, Queen Mary 2 and Queen Elizabeth will sail in single file to approach the port soon after dawn (4.55am), with firetugs and a flotilla of small boats expected to welcome them in. As Queen Elizabeth and Queen Victoria take a bow-to-bow position close to City Terminal, Queen Mary 2 will pass each ship in turn, creating a Three Bow formation, as crew line the foredecks, and the ships whistles sound in salute.

3.Firework Spectacular: 10.20pm-10.35pm approx


Between 9pm and 10.15pm, the ships will reposition, creating a three ship formation around City Terminal. A stunning firework display fired from opposite City Terminal will light up the sky above the three ships as the climax to a very special day.

4.Three Ships Departure: 11pm approx


The three ships are expected to sail from the City Terminal area by 11pm, with Queen Mary 2 leading Queen Victoria and Queen Elizabeth as the day draws to a close.

2.Red Arrows Aerial Display: 6.20pm-6.45pm


The Red Arrows will perform a full display over Southampton for the first time, flying over the length of the docks, with the focus over Marchwood Pier. Queen Mary 2 will be at Ocean Terminal, Queen Victoria at Mayflower Terminal and Queen Elizabeth at City Terminal.

Vantage Points for the Red Arrows and Fireworks


As well as Mayflower Park, which is expected to attract substantial crowds, good views are expected from Town Quay and Hythe Marina.
