Camilla guest of honour on Queen Victoria
quote:

Camilla, who is Godmother of the 90,000-ton Cunard vessel after naming it two years ago, unveiled a plaque to mark the 170th anniversary of the company's first transatlantic crossing from Liverpool.
Hundreds of passengers and well-wishers lined the decks and the banks of the River Mersey to see the Duchess, who was forced to shelter from the rain under an umbrella.

Inside Cunard's 'Queen Victoria' as She Sails the Norwegian Fjords
quote:

She's 90,000 gross registered tons, 964.5' long, goes as fast as 23.7 knots and up to 3,003 people can call her their temporary home at any given time, but these numbers mean nothing until you're onboard, feeling Cunard Line's massive Queen Victoria smoothly maneuver around lush islands in the Norwegian Fjords.
