Cunard expands fleet with “Queen Anne”

She is one of a long line of ships: The long-established Cunard Line has taken delivery of its latest cruise ship, the “Queen Anne”, from Fincantieri.

The Italian-built luxury liner was added to the shipping company’s fleet during a handover ceremony at Fincantieri’s Marghera shipyard in Venice. The “Queen Anne” is the 249th ship to sail under the Cunard flag – and the third to be built by Fincantieri. [ds_preview]

“Queen Anne” with luxury on 14 decks

The luxury liner offers space for around 3,000 paying guests and 1,225 crew members and will set sail from Lisbon to her home port of Southampton on 3 May for her seven-day maiden voyage.

The 114,000 GT ship has 14 decks and reportedly offers a wider choice of entertainment, restaurants and bars than any other ship.

Together with the “Queen Mary 2”, the “Queen Elizabeth” and the “Queen Victoria”, the new ship forms a remarkable quartet. It is the first time since 1999 that Cunard has had four ships in service at the same time.

With a length of 323 m and a width of 36 m, the “Queen Anne” is equipped with ABB pods. The total output of more than 50 MW comes from four Caterpillar-MaK generators. She can reach an impressive 22 knots.
