At Liverpool Cathedral on 3 October 2008 on the QE2`s final British Isles cruise Simon Weston spoke about the QE2 and the Falklands Campaign. At the end of the speech the west doors of the Cathedral were opened and the band of the Welsh Guards entered the Cathedral. Another emotional moment at this event.

  • QE2, a home from home - beautiful from all angles!
I think Simon Weston was onboard QE2 on our first trip in August 2003, 11th to 17th August Westbound, and I remember we saw him at JFK when we were all about to fly back home. As a 6 year old I had no idea of his suffering, and as young children usually do I stared at him out of curiosity which I regret now. He is a very brave person and his recovery given the circumstances is remarkable.
First sailed on QE2 in August 2003 aged 6 years old. Last stepped foot and sailed on QE2 in July 2008. Last saw the seagoing QE2 in person from the decks of QM2, on QE2's last Transatlantic crossing (Eastbound tandem) in October 2008. Visited QE2, in her new life, in Dubai back in January 2020.


Hello from Simon - final transatlantic (book)
