Liverpool. A Visit From A Queen.

There was a Royal visitor to the River Mersey this week, Cunard’s Queen Mary II, currently the largest cruise liner afloat at 79,000 tonnes. Don’t worry I won’t be hitting you over the head with long lists of facts and figures. Just selection of images from the evening.

To keep things a little bit fresh I took […]
