Cunard announce new ship

Today, Cunard and Fincantieri’s Castellammare di Stabia shipyard celebrated the start of construction on the 249th ship of the luxury cruise line. The yet unnamed ship will be the second largest ship to fly the Cunard flag and is set to reimagine the luxury cruise experience with an array of unique and exciting on board amenities.

The first section of the ship, which is set to be delivered in Mofalcone, Gorizia, Italy in 2022, is under construction at Fincantieri’s. The shipbuilding group previously delivered Cunard’s Queen Victoria in 2007 and Queen Elizabeth in 2010.

The steel cutting ceremony is a keystone-event in the life of Cunard’s new ship, of the occasion, Simon Palethorpe, President, Cunard said, “After years of planning and design, we are delighted to see building works commence on our newest ship. The 249th Cunarder will be our fourth luxury liner for the 21st century. The new ship is taking inspiration from the successes of our past, integrating the Cunard spirit with exciting new concepts and ideas that will provide a uniquely luxurious travel experience for our guests.”

Mr Gilberto Tobaldi, Shipyard Director, Fincantieri added, “We are very proud to be embarking on this next chapter of Cunard’s history with the start of the build of their newest ship and we look forward to working with the Cunard and Carnival UK teams over the next months.”
