CROSSING & CRUISING
THE QE2 AND THE GREAT CUNARDERS
Presented by Bill Miller
Placido Domingo Hall, Opera America/The National Opera Center
330 Seventh Avenue, 7th floor (at West 29th Street), Manhattan

The year 2019 is the 50th anniversary of the maiden voyage of the beloved, iconic QUEEN ELIZABETH 2 -- the QE2. While that extraordinary ship, the most successful liner ever, lives on out in Dubai, it is the perfect occasion to celebrate both the ship and its owners. No company has the grand history that belongs to Cunard.

On Friday, February 15th, the PONY Branch will once again welcome Bill Miller, “Mr. Ocean Liner,” who will take us on a "voyage," a voyage of recollection and remembrance, beginning with the first Queens, the immortal QUEEN MARY and QUEEN ELIZABETH.  While we will "travel" to the current age of three modern Queens (with a fourth expected in 2022), other Company liners will make "guest appearances" – including the AQUITANIA, MAURITANIA, CARONIA, BRITANNIC and more.

The whistle is sounding -- all aboard for a voyage of Cunard history and 50 years for the QE2!

For the first time ever, Oceania Cruises will offer 7-night round-trip sailings from New York to Bermuda in 2019. And at just 30,000 tons and 700 passengers, the INSIGNIA will be able to call at the traditional Bermuda ports of Hamilton and St. George’s, which are off limits to today’s mega-ships—the first ship in years to offer this itinerary from New York. Come join fellow PONY Branch members for this rare chance to take part in the time-honored tradition of cruising from New York to Bermuda in one of today’s finest ships. See flyer for details.
