Cunard Announce New Ship
I received a very exciting email today and one that I definitely wasn’t expecting. Cunard has announced that they will be building a new ship. Which will take the three Queens up to four.
This is the first new ship for Cunard since the launch of Queen Elizabeth in 2010 and the 249th in the companies long history since it was founded in 1839.
Arnold Donald, CEO of Carnival Corporation said
“Cunard offers a fleet of unrivalled vessels and one of the most unique travel experiences in the world, which together create an enchanting and memorable vacation for our guests. While today’s news helps drive Cunard’s overall strategic growth plans, we also look forward to launching this next-generation cruise ship to help meet increasing global demand and entice even more travellers to explore the Cunard experience.”
The as yet unnamed ship is due to be launched in 2022 and will have the capacity to carry 3000 guests. Cunard is due to start releasing more details in 2018.
I love Cunard and can’t wait to find out more details about the ship and eventually get to sail on her. I also can’t wait to find out which Queen she will be named after.
What do you think the might call the ship? Let me know in the comments below.
