Cunard announced today it’s signed an agreement for a new ship.
The fourth #CUN4RD ship is due in 2022 and is the first new build in 12 years.
The 3000 passenger ship will share the iconic red and black Cunard livery and it will be the first time since 1998 that there will be 4 ships in the fleet.
Simon Palethorpe, Senior Vice President, Cunard said: “We have only recently marked the 50th anniversary of one of Cunard’s much loved ocean liners, the legendary QE2. What better way to celebrate her important role in Cunard’s past than by announcing our commitment to Cunard’s future with the commissioning of a new ship. Cunard offers unrivalled luxury ocean experiences and the new ship firmly underpins our plans to continue our growth across international markets.”
· The new 113,000 GRT (Gross Registered Tonnage) ship will carry 3,000 guests and will be launched in 2022
· This will be 249th ship to fly the Cunard flag
· Cunard’s first new ship in 12 years, since the launch of Queen Elizabeth in 2010
· The first time since 1998 that the luxury cruise brand will have four ships in simultaneous service
Further details on the new ship will be released during 2018 and up to launch.
