Southampton vs. Liverpool: Is Cunard About to Switch Cruise Ports?
quote:

(1:30 p.m. EDT) -- Liverpool enjoyed a day of pomp and ceremony last Thursday when Cunard's Queen Elizabeth made its maiden call, an event celebrated with a rousing service in Liverpool Cathedral. But the excitement surrounding the visit has further fuelled the row between Southampton, Cunard's long-time homeport, and Liverpool, where the line was based until 1966, which has been pushing aggressively for increased cruise business.
