Yesterday morning, January 25, Cunard’s luxury cruise liner, Queen Victoria, made her maiden voyage via ‘Meeting of Waters,’ and became the biggest passenger ship to sail the Amazon, cruising between the dark Rio Negro and pale Amazon River in Manaus, Brazil. 

Manaus marks the 6th out of 32 ports on Queen Victoria’s 41,000 nautical mile, 120-night World Voyage.

“Queen Victoria’s maiden call in Manaus represents the type of innovation and uniqueness that guests have come to expect from Cunard,” said Josh Leibowitz, senior vice president, Cunard North America.

“Since it pioneered World Cruising in 1922, Cunard has continued to offer guests itineraries that visit exciting destinations and that offer unique ‘firsts’ that can only be experienced on Cunard.”
