Cunard takes delivery of the new QE


Cunard took delivery of it's new vessel Queen Elizabeth today, ready for the official christening next month.

Peter Shanks, the line’s president and managing director officially 'picked up the keys' at Fincantieri Monfalcone shipyard in Venice where she was built.

This is the third new ship built for the Carnival Corporation-owned brand in the last six years joining Queen Mary and Queen Victoria.

Shanks said: “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 – including the ship’s official naming by Her Majesty The Queen in Southampton on Monday October 11.

“I’m certain the British will take this truly magnificent ship to their hearts, as they have all the Cunard Queens”.

The new ship is due to leave Venice on September 30, and will sail to Southampton – where she will berth at the Ocean Cruise Terminal on Friday October 8.

(A few lucky CruiseDot members have been invited, so we'll keep you posted on events as they happen. )

Following her inauguration, the new liner will embark on its maiden voyage to the Canary Islands.

Here are a few shots of how she looks at the moment, courtesy of Cunard:

Default QE September 29, 2010 at Monfalcone: Handover

Here's an actual pic from yesteday when she was handed-over at Monfalcone and sailed for the UK today:




Queen Vic has a much more attractive better Stern! This is because they have squeezed extra cabins onto Lizzy. See below:
