On a cruise ship
Queen Anne: Largest Cunard ship debuts in May 2024
The 3,000-passenger Queen Anne, the fourth ship in the Cunard Line family, debuts in May 2024 out of Southampton, England, with a number of Cunard signature spaces as well as new guest experiences in dining, entertainment and more. The decor will feature bold tones with a striking aesthetic, all while keeping in line with Cunard’s timeless, sophisticated look.
The ship will be the largest ship in the historic cruise line’s storied fleet made up of Queen Mary 2, Queen Victoria and Queen Elizabeth. The launch of Queen Anne will mark the first time since 1999 that Cunard will have four active ships at sea.
Ship highlights include a two-deck theater, a grand lobby and new specialty restaurants. Queen Anne will bow to the latest trends in cruise travel in a way Cunard hasn't done before, including providing a choice in dining, new entertainment venues, wellness and onboard activities.
The ship will offer 15 different places to grab a bite, more than double the number on its sister ships. Other highlights include an expanded Commodore Club observation lounge and The Pavilion, a main pool area topped with a retractable glass roof.
Where Queen Anne sails
Queen Anne initially will sail in Europe before setting off on an around-the-world cruise in January 2025. The ship voyages throughout Europe, the Caribbean and the Pacific, with cruises ranging from 7 to 99 nights to such places as the Canary Islands, Norwegian fjords, Scandinavia, Iceland, British Isles, Western Mediterranean, New York, San Francisco, Sydney, Hong Kong, Dubai and dozens of other places.
Among the highlights on Queen Anne:
- The Panorama Pool Club offers terrific sea views and a primo location at the aft of the ship. Passengers can relax in sun loungers, take a dip in the monochrome-striped pool and enjoy the vibe created by DJs and live bands.
- The Pavilion offers recreational options such as morning yoga, musical afternoons or movies beneath the stars. As night falls, The Pavilion transforms into an entertainment hub with its stage and dance floor, and it all happens under a retractable glass dome roof.
- The Grills Terrace is an exclusive sanctuary for Princess and Queens Grill Suites guests. The getaway features two infinity hot tubs with stunning views and seating options to relax with a book, enjoy a drink, and savor snacks.
- The Spa offers a sprawling thermal pool complex that includes eight heated loungers, four experiential showers, a reflexology footpath with textured stones flowing with hot water, a cold room, a large steam room, a Himalayan salt sauna, a traditional sauna, a relaxation room and wellness suite.
- The Wellness Studio at the top of the ship will offer classes in yoga, Pilates, Zumba and line dancing during the day and ballroom dancing classes at sunset.
The ship will have 15 restaurants, including the main dining room Britannia Restaurant, which is on all the line's ships, and the popular Golden Lion pub — Cunard has teamed up with Michelin-starred chef Michel Roux to revamp its menu. You can enjoy complimentary dining based on your selected stateroom or choose from several specialty restaurants.
Queen Anne will offer a dedicated restaurant depending on which stateroom category you choose. For example, the Britannia Restaurant offers complimentary dining to stateroom guests. Princess Grill suite guests dine in the elegant Princess Grill. The tastefully appointed Queen’s Grill features fine dining for Queens Grill suite guests. The Britannia Club restaurant has flexible dining for Britannia Club Balcony stateroom guests. Each of these will serve breakfast, lunch and dinner.
You can also find a 24-hour buffet at the Lido and for-fee specialty dining in the Asian, Mexican, Italian or Smokehouse eateries. And you can dine in with 24-hour room service.
For an extra cost, you can choose from four alternative restaurants that are new to Cunard:
Aranya (meaning “abundance”) is a new restaurant that will showcase the rich, spicy flavors of India, providing a multi-sensory experience.
Aji Wa is a Japanese restaurant featuring sushi and a special "chef's choice" Omikase tasting menu in the evening.
Sir Samuels is a high-end steakhouse in a traditional setting.
Tramonto offers outdoor dining — great for catching a sunset — and fresh Mediterranean-inspired cuisine.
