“It is a huge honour for myself and the crew of Cunard’s Queen Elizabeth to meet HMS Queen Elizabeth for the first time, to share the sea with the Royal Navy’s lead ship of the Queen Elizabeth-class of aircraft carrier and the largest warship ever built for the UK is a pleasure and I would like to take this opportunity to wish Commander Kyd and his crew well with their sea trials.”
