After being completed two years later than planned, Queen Anne finally set sail on her maiden voyage, sailing from Southampton to Lisbon in Portugal, in May 2024. Cunard will officially name Queen Anne in a ceremony in Liverpool on Monday, June 3 2024.

Here we’ve taken a look at what a luxurious stay on the Queen Anne could look like, including video of the glitzy restaurants and modern recreational areas on the impressive vessel.

The Pavilion

The videographer walks out onto the bright and fresh-looking pavilion and shows off its main feature - the swimming pool. We see the ‘specially-designed’ glass dome roof that retracts in warmer climes and the central stage for performances or film screenings. Footage shows the top deck wellness studio, with equipment set up for a class of sunset yoga perhaps. The studio offers a range of classes for all abilities, in a relaxing space with ocean views.

The Grand Lobby

Video shows Captain Inger Thorhauge together with her crew in The Grand Lobby. The Grand Lobby features a curved grand staircase and marble flooring. The Grand Lobby Boutiques include brands such as Garrard fine jewellery, Raishma, Shaun Leane, Hugo Boss and the Cunard Collection for a unique shopping experience on Queen Anne.

The Royal Court Theatre

Footage shows Queen Anne’s 835-seat Royal Court Theatre. Passengers can enjoy an evening at the theatre watching a new in-house production or a critically acclaimed West End show. We also see The Queens Room, a Cunard-signature entertainment space, and The Bright Lights Society show bar - an intimate performance room exclusive to Queen Anne.

Carinthia Lounge

Video shows a mouth-watering selection of pastries, savoury bites and sweet treats in Queen Anne’s Carinthia Lounge. Cunard says the Carinthia Lounge is an ideal setting for light lunches, small plate dishes and premium wines. The lounge hosts a variety of live entertainment every day, ranging from quiz nights to jazz.

Princess Grill and Queens Grill

Footage shows the opulent setting of the Princess and Queens Grill restaurants. If guests are staying in a Princess Grill or Queens Grill suite, they have exclusive access to the corresponding Grill restaurant. The Princess Grill restaurant offers ‘an exquisite and unforgettable dining experience’. Diners hold a reserved table throughout their voyage. Cunard says the Queens Grill restaurant is the ‘epitome of luxurious, intimate dining’. It has a ‘stellar’ menu and special culinary requests are welcomed.
