While everyone is thinking of the disembarked Diamond Princess passengers, another 14-day quarantine is starting for the crew members.

Two well-known ships met up which both have the same name. One cruise ship operated by Cunard Line and a Royal Navy ship.

The rendezvous of the two ships, that share the same name and who were both christened by The Queen, took place in the Moray Firth off the coast of Scotland during Queen Elizabeth’s 13-night tour of the British Isles.

Captain Inger Klein Thorhauge of Cunard’s Queen Elizabeth, said:

“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.”

Queen Elizabeth is a 92,000 gross ton vessel and is currently based out of Southampton, UK. HMS Queen Elizabeth is the UK’s newest and largest-ever aircraft carrier and ship for the Royal Navy at 65,000 gross tons.
