Cunard have announced the name of its new ship, set to enter service in 2023. The new ship will join the company's current three Queens, Queen Mary 2 (2004), Queen Victoria (2009) and Queen Elizabeth (2010).
The name chosen for the line's fourth ship is Queen Anne. The 3,000-passengers ship will be the first new Cunard to launch for well over a decade. It will also be the first time since 1998 that Cunard have operated four ships simultaneously.
Queen Anne will share the company's iconic livery and red and black funnels. The ship will also feature distinctive Cunard signatures and brand new experiences on board, which will combine as part of the next generation of the historic Cunard fleet.
At 113,000 gross tonne the new ship will be the second largest in the fleet, the largest being the flagship ocean liner Queen Mary 2, built in 2004.
Queen Anne is currently under construction at the Fincantieri shipyard in Trieste, Italy and is set to enter service in early 2024.
