Cunard Museum
« on: Jan 13, 2018, 12:35 AM »
Regardless whether or not Cunard has a museum, as well as the circumstances that'd prevent something like this from happening.

You know what'd be really cool? If Cunard had surviving ships like QM, QE2, and QM2 were gathered around Cunard's head office as one big museum attraction.


QE2: the liner against which all others are measured.

That would be kind of unrealistic as QM and QE2 were sold off to buyers, but if they retain ownership of QM2, they could berth her somewhere at the end of her sea going life.

Yeah I know, that's why I said "regardless of the circumstances that'd prevent this from happening."

Cunard doesn't have a'head office' as such, it's just PART of Carnival UK and housed in Carnival House in S'ton. Cunard's last 'Head Office' was Mountbatten House which was vacated many years ago.
That apart, berthing ships as 'Museum pieces' anywhere would require the agreement, and financial backing, of the local authority, in this case, Southampton Council.  There are very few, if any, 'Museum ships' that break even, let alone make any return for their backers. 
A nice idea but totally unrealistic and 'pie in the sky'.
