Cunard Cruises has taken possession of the latest addition to its regal fleet, Queen Victoria, at a ceremony that occurred over the weekend.

The ship is now being prepared to make its journey to the UK in time for next month's official naming ceremony which the Duchess of Cornwall will preside over.

Also set to be in attendance at the event will be the Prince of Wales and Queen Victoria will set sail on her maiden world cruise the day after, on Tuesday December 11th 2007.

At the handover ceremony, Cunard Cruises' president Carol Marlow commented: "This ceremony to mark the completion of the ship and our acceptance of delivery is just the first of a number of significant events over the next few weeks."

The new ship contains 990 staterooms and weighing in at 90,000 tonnes has a guest capacity of 2,000.

"I'm certain the British will take this truly magnificent ship to their hearts," Ms Marlow concluded.

"I booked my first ever cruise on Tuesday 5th September 2017. After lengthy searching and much deliberation we booked through Iglu. So far, I am incredibly happy I booked with Iglu. 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. I am very impressed with all aspects of dealing with Iglu and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all your support. "

"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...”
