Cunard Line launched a new queen this week in Southampton, England. The Prince of Wales, Prince Charles, and The Duchess of Cornwall, Camilla Parker Bowles, attended a regal ceremony to launch Cunard Line's new $500 million Queen Victoria, a 90,000 ton, 2,014 passenger ocean liner. The Duchess of Cornwall performed the official naming of the ship as part of a colorful and regal ceremony. More than 2,000 VIP guests, celebrities and dignitaries observed the ceremony (including The Avid Cruiser) in a marquee auditorium shoreside at the ship's bow, while several hundred people followed the ceremony on a large screen in a nearby park.
