A new self-guided art tour is set to introduce a new generation of aesthetically-minded cruisers to the collection on Cunard Cruises'Queen Victoria
The collection's contemporary feel is appropriate for a liner named after one of the most forward-looking leaders in Britain's history, Cunard Cruises
Now, a museum-style self-guided tour will complement the range of artworks displayed on the vessel, with the help of Apple's iPod Touch, available to borrow onboard.
An 80-minute audio overview takes captivated cruisers on a tour of 25 of the most important pieces onboard Queen Victoria
, while video interviews with artists give a new dimension to the works displayed.
"Through this extraordinarily well-researched collection, we convey the ambiance that guests expect on a liner named Queen Victoria
- a sense of history and grandeur coupled with a more contemporary appreciation of modern art by modern artists and artisans," said Carol Marlow, President of Cunard Cruises
The line recently announced that it has ordered a new ship, to be christened Queen Elizabeth.
