Executive Association Solent Lunch Friday 17th Feburary 2023, Steve Herra, Cunard History and Glamorous Stars

January 27, 2023

Steve Herra is a third-generation of Cunard employee; his last ship was QE2 where he was one of the Pursers and met some of the stars featured. On leaving Cunard he served in the Royal Naval Reserve and more recently conducted tours of Cunard and P&O ships whilst they were in Southampton; sadly because of the pandemic these have now ceased.

Steve’s talk will be on “Cunard History and Glamorous Stars”

  • It is based upon the history of Cunard from 1840 until the present day and includes some of the more famous liners but not all as there were nearly 250!
  • Steve also talks about some of the celebrities and stars who sailed aboard Cunard ships.
  • What did Charles Dickens think about the furnishings aboard Britannia?
  • Which actress brought her gleaming white Rolls Royce on board Queen Mary and her own chickens as she demanded fresh eggs each day?
  • When at a New York function, what was the reply to the lady who described Elizabeth Taylor’s very large diamond ring as vulgar?
