A new ship will be joining the Cunard fleet in 2024 and will be called Queen Anne.

This will mark the first time since 1999 that Cunard will have four ships at sea.

Cunard was inspired by Queen Anne’s reign when it came to choosing the name for the ship and enlisted the help of British historian, author and television presenter Kate Williams in researching the life and times of the monarch.

According to Cunard, the name ‘Queen Anne’ celebrates the British cruise line’s ‘rich heritage, royal history and refined status’.

The ship joins a ‘luxury contemporary’ fleet that honours the names of each Queen Regnant over the last millennium.

‘This marks a very special moment in Cunard’s 182-year history and showcases Cunard’s exciting global plans for the future, allowing even more guests around the world to set sail with Cunard. With design inspired by the past and set for the future, Queen Anne is the perfect way for our guests to rediscover the joy of exploration and travel again.

‘We look forward to sharing more details in the coming weeks and months.’

Historian Kate added: ‘It is so exciting that the fourth ship of the fleet will be named after Queen Anne. She has a fascinating tale to tell – one of queenship, unity of developing constitutional monarchy, a golden age of the arts. She was an inspiring woman, wildly popular with her people. She should be celebrated. This new ship in the Cunard fleet is the perfect way to do it!’

Queen Anne’s maiden season programme will go on sale in May. For more information visit www.cunard.com.
