Pyrotechnics show ahead of Eurovision on Queen Mary 2

By Cruise Booking Team

Eurovision Village opened with a pyrotechnic show by Cunard’s Queen Mary 2. A press release states this.

Cunard vice president of brand and product development Lee Powell said: “We were thrilled to launch Eurovision 2023 from Queen Mary 2, particularly in Liverpool, the host city. As the Eurovision Song Contest’s flagship, she epitomizes the glitz, glamour, and sheer spectacle of the event. The official opening of such an iconic and global TV event was a privilege for us to host some of the city’s dignitaries.”

As part of Liverpool’s Eurovision festivities on May 4, the ship docked in the River Mersey during its Coronation Celebration cruise. A blue and yellow light show lit up the Royal Liverpool Building, the Cunard Building, and the Port of Liverpool Building in solidarity with Ukraine.

Theresa Grant, the Chief Executive Officer of Liverpool City Council, and Mayor Anderson attended the afternoon tea hosted by Queen Mary 2.

Earlier this week, King Charles and his consort visited Liverpool, and now the beautiful Queen Mary 2 is here today. According to Liverpool City Assets’ Angie Redhead, it has been a royal week for Liverpool. Liverpool and Cunard have a long-standing relationship. Two very significant national moments were celebrated here this weekend: King Charles’ Coronation and Eurovision. It seemed only fitting that Queen Mary 2 should be part of the celebration. The world-famous welcome aboard your flight will earn ‘Twelve points’.
