Today is a special moment in Cunards rich history, the naming of their fourth ship in the fleet. Introducing … Queen Anne. 

Queen Anne will be Cunard’s 249th ship and will make up a remarkable quartet of Queen Mary 2, Queen Victoria, and Queen Elizabeth. This will mark the first time since 1999 that Cunard will have four ships at sea. The name ‘Queen Anne’ celebrates Cunard’s rich heritage, royal history, and refined status – joining a luxury contemporary fleet now honouring the names of each Queen Regnant over the last millennium.

The Cunard team explored multiple naming options and inspired by Queen Anne’s reign, engaged with British historian, author and television presenter, Kate Williams, to assist in the detailed research.

‘It is so exciting that the fourth ship of the fleet will be named after Queen Anne. Undervalued by history, she has a gripping tale to tell – one of queenship, unity of developing constitutional monarchy, a golden age of the arts. She was an inspiring woman who fought to be monarch and bring peace. Wildly popular, even though she had a short reign, she should be celebrated. This new ship in the Cunard fleet is the way to do it!’ 

Kate Williams, Historian

Queen Anne will feature reimagined Cunard signature spaces as well as the introduction of new guest experiences within dining, culture, and entertainment, for an unparalleled cruise experience underpinned by outstanding White Star Service. Bridging tradition and contemporary luxury, Queen Anne celebrates the influential design styles of both past and present and introduces an updated Cunard livery. World renowned designers have joined forces to create an extraordinary and thoughtful standard-setting design – inspiring a new way to travel on sea. The décor will reveal bold colour tones and showcase a striking aesthetic, while in keeping with the renowned timeless Cunard sophistication.

“I am absolutely delighted to welcome Queen Anne, the fourth ship to Cunard’s fleet. This marks a very special moment in Cunard’s 182-year history and showcases Cunard’s exciting global plans, allowing even more guests around the world to set sail with Cunard. With design inspired by the past and set for the future, Queen Anne is the perfect way for our customers to rediscover the joy of exploration and travel again. We look forward to sharing more details in the coming weeks and months”.

Queen Anne’s maiden season programme will go on sale in May 2022, with the ship’s first sailings in early 2024. We look forward to her arrival and will be revealing further updates on Cunards new addition to the fleet in the coming weeks and months.
