Queen Victoria to rule the waves

Posted by Marilyn on February 22, 2006

The Queen Elizabeth 2 and the Queen Mary 2 are expecting a new sister and hopefully they won’t be jealous. In December 2007 Cunard will launch the Queen Victoria, the third of its Queen vessels. It’s debut will mark the first time in Cunard’s 167 year history that three Queen’s will be in service at the same time.

At 90,000 tons, Queen Victoria will be the second largest ‘Cundarder’ ever. It is presently being built in Italy, and it will be capable of handling 2000 passengers and a crew of 900. With a three-story lobby, 12 passenger decks, 1,007 state rooms, a conservatory and a 6000 book library, it is sure to outshine its sister ships.  

The Queen Victoria’s maiden voyage will take place on December 11, 2007.
