The Britannia staterooms, which comprise the majority of accommodations onboard, celebrate the deep blue of the ocean, glistening with flashes of gold to reflect the sunshine.
The cabins feature three-dimensional paper cut deco frames celebrating patterns from Cunard’s history.
Bespoke wall coverings offer a print pattern which takes inspiration from the Cunard crest and laurel with still life photography of historical Cunard objects in a bold, colourful presentation.
The Princess Grill suites are enveloped in sumptuous Cunard red and gold tones and warm wooden furnishings.
The ship’s premier category, the Queens Grill, has a bold art deco design using luxurious materials in deep shades of purple and wood intended for refined relaxation and entertainment.
The Grand and Master Suites are designed as luxe residences in subtle shades of green, purple, taupe and grey, framed with wood and marble highlights, intended to be a private enclave for entertaining friends on board.
Each of the top six suites has been named after an iconic waterway that was important to Cunard throughout their history including Mersey, Solent, Boston, Hudson, Halifax and Clyde.
Even the bathrooms will feature a black and white photo series documenting the construction of Queen Anne, created by world-renowned photographer Michael Mann.
The Grand Lobby will be the focal point of the ship, and where the new Cunard deco design anchors itself and echoes throughout each space onboard.
Overall, the design of Queen Anne is intended to be an evolution from the rest of the fleet and will be an exciting, bolder contemporary interpretation of Cunard’s design, according to a release.
Growth in North America
Cunard Line has also highlighted the opportunities a fourth ship presents for expansion in the key North American cruise market.
At Seatrade Cruise Global, Matt Gleaves, Cunard’s newly appointed VP, Commercial – North America and Australasia, said Queen Anne would represent a 40% expansion for the cruise line in the region.
The arrival of a fourth ship to the fleet provides Cunard the opportunity to increase the number of sailings in Alaska, Australia and Japan.
“As we step into the next chapter of Cunard’s storied history, Queen Anne provides a platform to evolve the future of the brand and bring reimagined Cunard signature experiences to new audiences,” said Gleaves.
“We are confident in the North American market and believe there is significant opportunity for growth,” he added. “Queen Anne will celebrate what makes Cunard so special in a way that is relevant for today’s luxury traveller, appealing to both our existing loyal guests and those sailing with us for the first time.”
Queen Anne is scheduled to launch in early 2024 with maiden season itineraries set to be announced on May 4th.
