Queen Victoria, the newest luxury liner in Cunard's celebrated fleet, made her maiden call to Ft. Lauderdale on January 16, just three days after embarking on her Maiden World Cruise and making an historic Royal Rendezvous in New York on Sunday with both sister-ships Queen Mary 2 and QE2. Queen Victoria has been sailing with QE2 since departing Southampton, England on January 6 making a tandem Transatlantic Crossing together. Queen Victoria was launched on December 10, 2007 by HRH The Duchess of Cornwall (Camilla Parker Bowles). Joining Queen Victoria at Port Everglades was Cunard's grand dame QE2, the world's most famous ocean liner. QE2 embarked on her 26th and final World Cruise and will complete her service to the Cunard fleet in November 2008.
