Queen Anne Review

Review of Queen Anne

The 2024-built MS Queen Anne cruise ship is Cunard's newest liner joining the fleet in 2024-Q1. The boat is currently under construction in Italy, at Fincantieri's shipyard in Marghera/Venice. The liner was launched in 2023 May and scheduled for inauguration in 2024 May (postponed from January due to supply chain issues).

The vessel (IMO number 9839399) is currently Bermuda-flagged (MMSI 310835000) and registered in Hamilton.

Queen Anne is also Cunard Line's 249th vessel, since the company's establishment in 1839. Although Queen Anne is not the fleet's biggest boat by GT tonnage/volume (113000 tons in comparison to the 148500-ton RMS Queen Mary 2) she is the fleet's largest by max passenger capacity (3353 guests + 1225 crew), surpassing also the sisterships Queen Victoria (2007) and Queen Elizabeth (2010).

History - construction and ownership

Cunard Line is a British-American cruise brand, operated by Carnival UK and owned by Carnival Corporation (shipowner). Cunard is headquartered in Southampton (England UK) and is among the world's oldest passenger shipping companies. In 2020, Cunard Line celebrated its 180th anniversary.

The Maiden Voyage (7-night from Southampton to Lisbon/without call ports) was initially scheduled for January 4, 2024. However, in November 2022 Cunard postponed the inaugural cruise to May 3rd (2024) citing supply chain issues affecting the vessel's construction. The new maiden voyage (7-day itinerary from Southampton to Lisbon/Cunard booking code H411N) visits only La Coruna (Spain).

The liner's original 2024 itinerary program included 32 seaports (visited on departures from Southampton) in Europe (Mediterranean, Baltic) and the Caribbean (via an ex-UK Transatlantic crossing).

  • Between January and March 2024 were scheduled voyages to Iberia and the Canary Islands.
  • In January 2024 had to start a 35-night roundtrip Transatlantic crossing (UK to the Caribbean) visiting the islands Barbados, St Lucia, St Maarten, St Thomas USVI.
  • In March-April 2024 was the 13-night Norwegian Fjords voyage visiting 5 ports in Norway, including Haugesund, Olden, Stavanger.
  • Mediterranean roundtrips from Southampton in 2024 visit ports in Italy (Civitavecchia-Rome), Spain (Barcelona, Palma de Mallorca), Portugal (Lisbon), France (Ajaccio Corsica).

One-way Transatlantic crossings between the UK and Florida USA (Southampton-Fort Lauderdale) were also offered, including a 12-night westbound (with Ponta Delgada Azores) and a 10-night eastbound (with Hamilton Bermuda).

Queen Anne's first World Voyage (108-day Southampton roundtrip) was scheduled for January 2025.

Queen Anne Wiki

In September 2017 was officially announced the planned addition of a 4th vessel to Cunard's fleet. The investment (EUR 540 million / USD 600 million) was part of the shipowner's/Carnival Corporation's fleet expansion program, adding newbuilds to the fleets of its subsidiary companies and travel brands AIDA, Costa, Princess, P&O UK.

Cunard's shipbuilding contract (MoA/memorandum of agreement) with Fincantieri was signed on Sept 25, 2017.

In October 2018, Cunard contracted the company Tihany Design (led by Adam D Tihany) to oversee the interior design works on the newbuild, which back then was planned for inauguration in 2022. Adam Tihany's latest project started with the layouts of the onboard dining venues, including Cunard's traditional "class restaurants" Queens Grill and Princess Grill. Besides Tihany Design, other companies currently involved in this project include the London UK-based David Collins Studio (led by Simon Rawlings) and Richmond International (by Terry McGillicuddy) as well as the Paris France-based SM Desing (by Sybille de Margerie).

The vessel's construction (Marghera yard/hull number 6274) officially started on October 11, 2019, with the steel-cutting ceremony held at Fincantieri's production yard in Castellammare di Stabia (near Naples). The special event was attended by Simon Palethorpe (Cunard's President), Gilberto Tobaldi (Fincantieri Castellammare Shipyard's Director) and Sam Shendi (British sculptor).

  • Sam Shendi was commissioned to create a unique artwork using as a core element the ship's ever-first piece of metal (the steel-cut) integrated into a sculpture that will be displayed in the Atrium. The Egypt-born Sam Shendi will create the sculpture using contemporary industrial materials, metals (steel and aluminum) and fiberglass.
  • The special ceremony was celebrated with a Grand Dinner held in Naples.

For choosing the cruise liner's name Cunard asked for assistance/research the British historian Kate Williams (1974-born). She is also an author of several British Royal Family-related books, as well as a TV presenter (at BBC Two and BBC4 series) and expert historian who specializes in social, constitutional and royal history. Kate Williams often appears in documentaries and TV and radio discussions themed on British history, literature and culture.

On April 29, 2022, at Castellammare di Stabia shipyard was launched the troncone (hull's forward lower/bow section) with which for the first time the vessel touched the water. The troncone (length 165 m/541 ft, width 35,6 m/117 ft, weight 12402 tons) was then towed by tugboats to Fincantieri's Marghera shipyard (Venice) where the boat will be completed.

The vessel's physical construction started on September 8, 2022, with the keel-laying ceremony at Marghera Yard. The ceremony was attended by Carnival UK's management team, as well as Fincantieri and Marghera yard employees. During the special event, into the hull's first keel block, the ship's Master (Captain Inger Klein Thorhauge) welded a unique/newly-minted ceremonial coin, together with an original Queen Anne crown coin.

The ship is powered by four MAK marine diesel engines (model 12V43C) with combined power output 50,4 MW. The propulsion system is based on two ABB Azipods (azimuth thrusters) with combined output 28 MW.

The name (Queen Anne) was officially announced by Cunard in February 2022. The boat's Master (Inger Klein Thorhauge) and some of the public areas were announced in March. Captain Thorhauge is Cunard Line's first female Captain and joined the company in 1997 as Second Officer on MS Vistafjord (1973-built/2017-scrapped as "Oasia", aka "MS Caronia" and "Saga Ruby"). Born in the Faroes, Thorhauge became MS Queen Victoria's Captain in 2010. Queen Anne's Second Captain is David Hudson (with Cunard since 2006).

Cunard's newest liner (the 249th vessel under Cunard) is named after Anne (1665-1714) - The Queen of England, Scotland and Ireland (1702-1707) and The Queen of Great Britain (1707-1714). During her reign (on May 1, 1707) the kingdoms of England and Scotland were united into Great Britain. In 1714, Queen Anne was succeeded by her second cousin - King George I (1660-1727).

On April 14, 2023, on the superstructure was mounted the funnel, traditionally for Cunard painted in red and black.

The ship was launched/floated out from drydock on May 3, 2023 - exactly 365 days before the Maiden Voyage (May 3rd, 2024, out of Southampton). The special event was attended by Sture Myrmell (Carnival UK's President) and Luigi Matarazzo (Fincantieri's General Manager of the Merchant Ships Division).

In September 2023, Cunard announced Queen Anne's senior officers for the maiden voyage - Inger Klein Thorhauge (Master Captain), Yuliyan Kostov (Deputy Captain), Jon Cammish (Chief Engineer), Robert Howie (Hotel General Manager), and Stuart Smart (Human Resources Manager).

The 16-day North Sea trials were conducted in February 2024, under Captain Inger Thorhauge. The first sea trials included checking, extreme testing, assessing and calibrating all systems (power/engines, propulsion, stabilizers).

MS Queen Anne was officially delivered to Cunard on April 19, 2024, at Fincantieri Marghera. The special ceremony was attended by VIP guests including Adolfo Urso (Italy's Minister for Business and Made in Italy), Luca Ciriani (Italy's Minister for Parliamentary Relations), Katie McAlister (Cunard's President), Paul Ludlow (Carnival UK's President), Pierroberto Folgiero (Fincantieri's CEO) and Luigi Matarazzo.

In September 2023, Cunard signed a 3-year partnership with BFI UK for MS Queen Anne. By the deal, in the period 2024-2027, in all passengers' staterooms and at The Pavilion (top-deck outdoor Cinema/LED screen) will be shown short films and blockbuster movies (10 every month). The Queen Anne-exclusive partnership deal was signed by Katie McAlister (Cunard's President) and Francesca Vinti (BFI's Director of Fundraising and Enterprise). BFI (British Film Institute) is a 1933-founded charitable organization promoting and preserving the UK's film production and distribution. BFI is funded by the National Lottery (1994-established) and is also sponsored by DCMS (UK's Department for Culture, Media and Sport).

Christening ceremony

MS Queen Anne ship's christening ceremony was held on June 3, 2024, dockside in Liverpool during the celebratory "The British Isles Festival Voyage". The special event took place shortly after sunrise and was hosted by Mathew James Willis (1983-born English musician/singer/songwriter, TV personality, actor, co-founder and co-vocalist of Busted/pop-punk band) and Emma Louise Willis (1976-born English TV broadcaster).

The naming event was attended by Katie McAlister (Cunard's President) and Andrew Lewis (Liverpool City Council's Chief Executive) and featured live performances by Andrea Bocelli, the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra and artists from the Liverpool Institute of Performing Arts.

Curiously, as the godparent of Queen Anne, Cunard named the City of Liverpool. The City was represented by five residents - Melanie Jayne Chisholm (1974-b, aka Melanie C from Spice Girls), Ngunan Adamu (1980-b, Founder and CEO of iWoman Media Ltd and iWoman Academy CIC), Natalie Celia Haywood (1981-b, Founder and Managing Director of LEAF Restaurant), Jayne Casey (1956-b, artistic director) and Katarina Mary Johnson-Thompson (1993-b, athlete).
