Cunard Adds a Queen

March 17, 2006
Queen Victoria would be proud.
The new cruise ship bearing her name has already been projected as the most luxurious of its type.
The new vessel begins service in December 2007, joining the Queen Mary 2 and the Queen Elizabeth 2 in an expanding Cunard fleet.
Its first cruise will be a 10-night North European itinerary, starting December 11, followed by a holiday-week voyage to the Canary Islands on December 21.
"This vessel will offer classic Cunard luxury and experience while at the same time providing the most up-to-date amenities and facilities, along with new impressive innovations," said Carol Marlow, the cruise line’s president and managing director.
The innovations include a three-story theater, a retractable glass roof, an art gallery, and a library with 6,000 books.
The ship will also have restaurants, shops, pools, and a myriad of other amenities expected by 21st century cruise passengers. Only 14 per cent of the 1,007 cabins have no sea view, while nearly three out of four feature balconies.
The $540 million ship will cater for more than 2,000 passengers, since many cabins will hold more than one person. The latest queen in the Cunard fleet will restrict first sailings to pre-registered bookings but begin taking all bookings on April 3.
