Theaters at sea

A contact of mine, with the retired ship RMS Queen Mary berthed here in Long Beach, California, has sent me a most interesting article about the newest British luxury liner still under construction.

Already in service is the RMS (Royal Mail Ship) Queen Mary 2, bigger and glitzier than all of the others put together! I now refer to the RMS Queen Victoria now in her finishing stages with a maiden voyage set for December ‘07.

Permission to name the new ship was granted by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth.

Aboard this 90,000 Cunard ship will be the Royal Court Theatre which seems to have gone back in time with architecture depicting a 19th century looking theme from her namesake. Interestingly, there will be an original chandelier from Osborne House, which was from Queen Victoria’s summer home on the N.E. tip of the Isle of Wight.

My friend’s article also contains two artists impressions of what the Royal Court Theatre will look like along with all the facts.

If “CT” fans are interested, I’ll forward the article to them by contacting me; .
