Passengers were automatically transferred to a new 7-night maiden voyage by the 3,000-guest ship from Southampton UK on May 3, 2024, calling La Coruna (Spain) and Lisbon (Portugal).
A Cunard's spokesperson said:
“Due in part to unforeseen events that have occurred in recent years, the shipbuilding industry, like other industries, has faced numerous challenges including energy shortages and global supply chain constraints.
“As a result, our new ship Queen Anne will be arriving slightly later than expected.”
The boat's revised maiden season will include cruises from Southampton UK to the Mediterranean, Canary Islands, Scandinavia, and Norwegian fjords.
The voyages go on sale on December 6, 2022, for Cunard World Club loyalty scheme members; on general sale the following day.
Cunard's sister brand P&O UK also pushed back the maiden voyage of its new ship Arvia from December 9 to 23 because of external issues.
