Cunard Line is joining in the celebration of the coronation of His Majesty The King and Her Majesty The Queen Consort by organizing coronation-themed activities fleetwide.

Tourists on Cunard's liners RMS Queen Mary 2, Queen Victoria, and Queen Elizabeth have the opportunity to participate in regal festivities such as street parties, themed musical performances, movies, quizz games.

An exclusive Coronation dinner menu has been created for the evening of May 6th, which is inspired by King Charles' love of farming, agriculture, game, and organic principles. The menu includes a selection of dishes made with some of his favorite ingredients.

Specially designed cocktails such as the "Coronation Oath" and the "Monarch Martini" will be available to toast Their Majesties.

Cunard's three ships will be at sea for the big day and will broadcast the ceremony live from Westminster Abbey into the ships' Royal Court Theatres and stateroom TVs. Additionally, a new Coronation Celebration voyage was announced earlier this week, with Queen Mary 2 sailing roundtrip from Southampton to Liverpool.

Cunard's world-renowned Insights program across the fleet will feature royal commentator Dickie Arbiter, historian Caroline Aston, and etiquette expert Grant Harrold. Each ship will also host a deck walk in honor of The Big Help Out on May 8 to raise money for youth charity The Prince's Trust.

This significant milestone will be celebrated on a special British Isles voyage in August. The Queen Consort has been a proud partner of Cunard's for the past 15 years since she was named godmother to Queen Victoria in 2007.
