On board Queen Anne
Learn about the dining venues, outdoor spaces and spa facilities on board Queen Anne.
As the countdown to one of the most eagerly anticipated ships of the century edges closer, we'll be giving sneak peeks of Queen Anne’s progress, from the person who knows her best.
Join Captain Inger, our first female captain, as she prepares to take the helm of our 249th ship next May. In this new Captain’s Log series, she’ll shine a light on building milestones, signature installations and everything in between!
You can expect regular Queen Anne moments and updates from Fincantieri over the next year, and in this kick-off edition Captain Inger reveals how the project has entered a very important phase...
"Packing up in my captain’s quarters on board Queen Elizabeth usually means looking forward to a spell of leave ashore. Not this time though!
This is because I’ll be joining another ship in what promises to be a true voyage of discovery, a journey unlike any other I have completed in my 25 years with Cunard. And I am delighted to be able to share this exciting adventure with you all.
I’ll soon have a chance to board my (very) new ship Queen Anne, the latest in our fine line and the 249th ship to sail in Cunard colours. This newest Cunarder is being built at the Fincantieri shipyards in Italy, and I’ll be looking forward to spending lots of time at the Marghera site near Venice over the coming months. It’s a rather special place to build cruise ships! Arriving at the yard by water taxi from the Grand Canal is an experience in itself.
From there, I’ll be writing my Captain’s Log, giving readers a unique insight as Queen Anne is brought to life."
Queen Anne's construction is coming along nicely – with the hull finished, it's time to install the upper accommodation decks and fit out the bridge. Get a glimpse of her build progress in the video below.
