The ships arrived in Southampton from their respective three-month world cruises.
They then set off on their summer season of transatlantic crossings, Mediterranean fly-cruises, Scandinavian and southern European sailings.
Commodore of the fleet, Christopher Rynd, said: “It is wonderful to be back in our homeport of Southampton.
“All three Queens have just completed their world cruises and now we are sailing out in procession, into the Solent.
“What a glorious way to start our 175 anniversary celebrations.”
The three vessels will meet again in Cunard’s original home of Liverpool on May 25 as part of a weekend of celebrations which is expected to attract up to one million spectators, according to local reports.
