Cunard’s Queen Mary 2 in Quebec City

Cunard’s Queen Mary 2 in Quebec City

Article by Elizabeth Davies

On September 9th, Quebec City was the host to a very distinguished guest:

 

The RMS Queen Mary 2  who added even more beauty to the city’s skyline! 

The Queen Mary 2 is a trans-atlantic ocean liner. She was the first major ocean liner built since Queen Elizabeth 2 in 1969, whom she succeeded as flagship of the Cunard Line. With the retirement of Queen Elizabeth 2 from active duty in 2008, Queen Mary 2 is currently the only transatlantic ocean liner in operation as a liner, although the ship is often used for cruising, including an annual world cruise.

Making my way through the narrow streets of Old Quebec to get to the Wharf 22, I photographed her from different angles including… 

a) From atop Cape Diamond, the highest point in Quebec City (where I live) and
b) Cannon in the foreground from Montmorency Park, named after Bishop Francois Montmorency de Laval-founder of Le Seminaire and University Laval.
