Luigi Matarazzo, General Manager Merchant Ships Division of Fincantieri, stated: “QUEEN ANNE is the third ship we have the pleasure to build for Cunard, a pillar in the history of British seafaring, with whom we share a real commitment to excellence. Building a liner for this shipowner takes us back to our roots yet, at the same time, spurs us forward to the future in a spirit of determination to bring together tradition and innovation and further strengthen our longstanding relationship”.
The float out, completes the first comprehensive phase of construction for QUEEN ANNE, which now transitions to focus on building the luxury ship's interiors.
The design concepts for Cunard’s newest ship have been founded on heritage, craftmanship, style, storytelling, and innovation, and the 113,000 gt, 3,000-guest QUEEN ANNE, which spans 14 decks, will offer travellers several breath-taking moments, including the largest curated art collection at sea.
Entering service in May 2024, QUEEN ANNE will make up a remarkable quartet for Cunard alongside QUEEN MARY 2, QUEEN VICTORIA and QUEEN ELIZABETH. It will be the first time since 1999 that Cunard will have four ships in simultaneous service.
The float out ceremony follows September’s keel laying, in which a coin was embedded into the ship’s keel by Captain Inger Thorhauge, alongside an original coin from the ship’s namesake’s reign, to mark the formal start of her construction.
