Quintessentially & Co had the privilege of producing Cunard’s celebration of the re-mastering of the magnificent Queen Mary II ship on the 23rd of June this year. The refit saw both the exterior and interior of the ship transformed, making the Queen Mary II the most magnificent cruise ship crossing the Atlantic. Guests consisted of press and VIPs who were given an exclusive tour of the ship, allowing them to see all the extraordinary improvements to areas including the Royal Court Theatre and the Planetarium.

To help Cunard celebrate this amazing achievement, Quintessentially organised a VIP drinks reception in a beautiful marquee overlooking the ship. The décor of the marquee was nautically inspired and celebrated the history of the Queen Mary II through the years. As the ship set sail for New York, it was joined in an amazing spectacle by the Queen Victoria and the Queen Elizabeth, with all three ships travelling down the Southampton River Test to the open water. Each ship calling to each other with the sound of their horns with fireworks provided the perfect send off for the occasion.
