Default Lusitania Centenary
100 years ago today, the Cunard liner RMS Lusitania sank after she was torpedoed off the coast of Ireland. She went down in just 18 minutes, taking nearly 1,200 lives with her.

I will be thinking of her passengers today.

Did you read the story about the teddy bear Maurice?

Yes -- what a wonderful story. I have friends who are onboard Queen Victoria now for the memorial cruise, and I hope that a photo of Maurice will be among the many they share.

Only a line that truly cherishes its history would put out a press release on a teddy bear. He (or she) is actually significant to us liner lovers. Just one of the reasons I love Cunard.
