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

unrivalled luxury ocean experiences and the new ship firmly underpins our plans to continue
our growth across international markets.”
