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.

What our customers say


"I booked a Fred Olsen cruise with IGLU last month and was so impressed by the service I received. The staff member I spoke to was Kimberley and she was exemplary. Capable, kind, professional, patient, friendly and knowledgeable. She went through every step of the way calmly and thoroughly. IGLU were recommended to me by friends and I have no hesitation in passing the recommendation along. Well done IGLU and thank you. "

"So easy to deal with, I studied the Cruise I wanted, did my research with different company's and returned to Iglu. I had three quotes matching Iglu’s cost, but with one phone call they beat the price themselves by £40 without me even asking, how easy was that! "
