Getting married on one of Cunard’s Queens

A little while ago I wrote about the growing popularity of getting married on board ship. It seems even the great liners can’t resist the pull of a wedding. From 2012 Cunard will be offering on board weddings. Couples will be able to choose between the three Queens – Queen Elizabeth, Queen Mary 2 or Queen Victoria.
In order to do this Cunard has to change the registration of their liners from Southampton England to Hamilton in Bermuda which means they will no longer fly the British Red Ensign flag – a change that will disappoint those who love the Britishness of Cunard. (I am sure the red pillar post box on board will remain however!)

Getting married on board ship will appeal to many – and some will choose to also honeymoon on board – maybe encouraging the rest of the wedding party to disembark in port after a few days so they can enjoy the romance of a cruise!
