Cunard’s Queen Victoria is “Pretty in Pink” in Sydney


History was made in Sydney today when, in a world first, Cunard’s Queen Victoria was illuminated in pink while berthed at Sydney’s Circular Quay. Queen Victoria was bathed in vibrant pink light from dusk to support Australia’s National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF), which officially launched its 2010 fundraising target of $17 million at an event onboard. Pink lights illuminated the entire ship, providing the ideal setting for the event.

“Pink has become synonymous with the fight against breast cancer, so we are delighted to offer NBCF the opportunity to boost awareness of research and claim a world first by being the first to illuminate a liner in pink,” said Peter Shanks, president of Cunard Line.

Queen Victoria will make history again this time next year when she sails her first “Americas” season, traversing the Panama Canal on more than one voyage, making rare roundtrip sailings from Los Angeles to Hawaii, plus debuting her inaugural Mexico Getaway voyage.
