Cunard is celebrating it's 175 by bringing together all three queens in Liverpool on the 25 May 2015. If within striking distance must be worth seeing. http://www.cunard.co.uk/cruise-types/anniversary-cruises-2015/ They have already met at Southampton. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-hampshire-32547710

Just a bump really as this weekend. The best day seems Monday which will see all three ships "manoeuvring" in the Mersey plus light show and fireworks in the evening. This has to be worth seeing if within striking distance.

Got on for a tour round last year in Greenock.This is the link to the Flickr set-some pics a wee bit shaky as low light and we were on the move most of the time. https://www.flickr.com/photos/34904785@N03/sets/72157644500372690 Think we're going to be able to get on when she's alongside on Tuesday as well.

Title line not absolutely correct as there is a NOTAM out advising of a pass down the River Mersey at 1350 on Monday 25th May by the 'Red Arrows' over the gathered Queens. They are operating from Hawarden to perform at the Llandudno seafront display at the weekend, then moving to display at Blackpool. Now I've got to work out if that is Zulu or already converted to local time!
