Lusitania Exhibition Aboard Queen Victoria for Commemoration Cruise
Queen Victoria shall display a temporary exhibition of Lusitania memorabilia during her 3 May 2015 commemorative voyage.
Eric Sauder, who has been commissioned to produce the exhibition, has been interested in the Lusitania for more than 30 years. He has dived on the wreck and authored two books on the subject: RMS Lusitania: The Ship and Her Record and The Unseen Lusitania: The Ship in Rare Illustrations, the latter to be released for the 100th anniversary of the sinking.
Lusitania was the first of 22 Cunard ships lost in the First World War and on 7 May 2015 it will be exactly 100 years since the Cunard flagship was torpedoed while en route from New York to Liverpool.
This special seven-night Lusitania Remembered voyage will commemorate her loss and the loss of the other Cunard ships in World War One. Queen Victoria will call at Cobh (formerly Queenstown) on 7 May 2015. Cobh will forever be associated with the tragedy. The sinking was a human catastrophe on a scale that this small town had not experienced before or since.
All passengers sailing on this memorable voyage will be invited to attend a special service ashore as well as witness a number of other tributes occurring that day, and a Commemorative Dinner will be held for them that evening on board the ship.
The Lusitania exhibit will feature china, silver, brochures, postcards, memorabilia and souvenirs that will bring to life the story of Cunard's flagship.
