Sir Michael Parkinson will be on board Cunard’s Queen Mary 2 and Queen Victoria ships this summer.

The talk show legend has joined the line’s Insights and Enrichment Programme and will entertain passengers on two sailings in May and June.

Passengers can enjoy An Evening with Michael Parkinson where the star will talk with his son, Mike, and recall his journey from a pit village to mainstream TV.

He will also relive his best moments from the chat show which defined him.

Parkinson will be on board Queen Mary 2 from May 10 to 17 on the first transatlantic crossing of the season and then on-board Queen Victoria to sail the Mediterranean from June 8 to 20.

Cunard currently has three ships – Queen Mary 2, Queen Elizabeth and Queen Victoria – but last year announced plans for a fourth ship to join its fleet in 2022.
