Cruise company, Cunard, has announced it is adding a fourth ship to its fleet, part of an investment of the company’s plans for the future.
The new ship, currently unnamed, is set to join the fleet, which consists of Queen Mary 2, Queen Victoria and Queen Elizabeth, in 2022.
The addition will be the first time since 1998 that the luxury cruise line will have four ships in simultaneous service.
Cunard will be revealing details about the new ship during the course of 2018 and through to the ship’s launch.
What else is new?
Cunard has invested more than £120 million refurbishing the flagship Queen Mary 2 and Queen Victoria.
Alongside an array of exciting new itineraries featuring new destinations and special event voyages for 2018 and 2019, Cunard has also continued to evolve the guest experience to meet the needs of the ‘luxury consumer’ by introducing new bar and dining signatures, entertainment offerings and brand partners across the fleet.
Simon Palethorpe, senior vice president of Cunard, commented: “We have only recently marked the 50th anniversary of one of Cunard's much-loved ocean liner, 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.”
