Cunard will cruise the Pacific for the first time in 20 years with a cruise that will start in Japan and have a layover on May 30 in Victoria. The ship will be the Queen Elizabeth.

That was my initial thought and reaction exactly; saw the QM2 in the Caribbean once on one of our Mayan Riviera family trips - my god that is a big mother of a ship. That said all the Cunard designs are smart looking vessels & the Queen Elizabeth is certainly no exception.

That vessel visits Victoria on May 30, 2019, not 2017.

Samuel Cunard, good Nova Scotian lad. The stone gateposts to his home still stand in Halifax's south end.
