VALENCIA, Calif., Nov. 27, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Peabody and Emmy® award winning actor, writer, and producer Keegan-Michael Key joined luxury cruise line Cunard on their flagship ocean liner Queen Mary 2 with wife Elisa Key to celebrate their recent nuptials. While onboard Key gave fellow guests an inside look into his fascinating career during an exclusive Q&A.
Key and his wife sailed on the line's signature voyage – a seven-night Transatlantic Crossing – which left Southampton, England on November 18, 2018, docking in Brooklyn, New York, on November 25. In addition to celebrating with Elisa, Keegan-Michael Key participated in Cunard's renowned Insights program, the onboard program that presents workshops, speakers, runway shows and Q&As with some of the world's most captivating experts from a variety of industries.
"On behalf of Cunard, it was wonderful to welcome Keegan-Michael and Elisa Key onboard Queen Mary 2," said Josh Leibowitz, SVP Cunard North America. "A Transatlantic Crossing is a voyage where guests have the opportunity to celebrate life's best moments, and we're so happy Mr. & Mrs. Key decided to celebrate onboard Cunard. As an added bonus for the guests travelling on the Thanksgiving voyage, Keegan-Michael surprised guests with a Q&A while onboard."
Known for Comedy Central sketch show "Key & Peele," Keegan-Michael Key has recently shown off his acting talent in more serious roles including Horatio opposite Oscar Isaac's Hamlet at the Public Theater in New York City. Key is also set to continue starring in Netflix's original series "Friends from College" and will lend his voice to the live-action re-imagining of the 1994 Disney classic "The Lion King" and to the recently-announced "Toy Story 4."
Stage, film and TV superstar Alan Cumming will be joining the Insights program on the January 3, 2019 Transatlantic Crossing on Queen Mary 2.
