Date Posted: 11 Dec 2007

The latest ship in the Cunard Cruises flotilla has been officially welcomed into the fold after being named in a ceremony yesterday.

Queen Victoria was christened by the Duchess of Cornwall in a regal ceremony in front of over 2,000 guests in Southampton.

The ship is the second largest to ever be built for Cunard Cruises and is designed to be the height in luxury for cruise ship passengers.

"Every one of our Cunard Queens has been named by a member of the royal family and we are delighted that Queen Victoria follows in this regal tradition," commented Carol Marlow, President and Managing Director of Cunard Cruises.

The Prince of Wales was also in attendance at the event as his wife became the latest member of the royal family to name a Cunard Cruises vessel.

Queen Victoria is due to depart on her maiden voyage to the European Christmas markets today on a sell-out cruise.

This being our first cruise Debi proved very helpful. I was [also] very impressed with the level of assistance offered by Connie. She answered my questions and put my mind at rest.

"Leighanne has been excellent dealing with my various queries this year. She has been kind and informative and obtained what i think is a good deal for me in October. She is persistent and very informative, so even when my 1st deal fell through I felt confident enough to approach her for this present Crystal cruise...”
