Cunard’s Queen Elizabeth returns to Liverpool

Cunard’s Queen Elizabeth will be returning to Liverpool, and you can celebrate the return with Mersey Ferries and enjoy unrivalled views of the iconic luxury cruise ship on a 50-minute River Explorer Cruise- the perfect way to spend the August bank-holiday weekend! 

Queen Elizabeth’s first visit will be on Sunday August 29, and Mersey Ferries will be running a series of scheduled River Explorer Cruises that will be setting sail close to Queen Elizabeth, offering the opportunity to see the iconic ship in front of Liverpool’s world-famous waterfront.  

The experience also includes expert commentary throughout the 50-minute trip, so visitors can sit back, relax and soak in their incredible surroundings aboard the iconic Mersey Ferry – an ideal day out for all the family. 

A visit by one of the iconic Cunard vessels always plays a highly significant role in Liverpool’s cruise season, as Cunard was founded in Liverpool in 1839 and the city was home to their Head Office for nearly 130 years – the Cunard building remains one of the landmark sights that can be viewed from the deck of Mersey Ferries River Explorer Cruises.
