Cunard Details Queen Victoria Sailings

Cunard Line introduced the first specifics about the new Queen Victoria, a 90,000-ton liner launching in December 2007. The new ship will feature private viewing boxes in the Royal Court Theater; a museum of Cunard memorabilia; and a two-story library with 6,000 books. In addition, the new ship will offer al fresco dining in an exclusive new outdoor patio called The Courtyard; that venue will be reserved for guests staying in higher end accommodations. Boasting Cunard's distinctive black and red livery, Queen Victoria will debut with a Christmas Markets voyage on Dec. 11, 2007 and a Canary Islands Festive Celebration voyage on Dec. 21, 2007. Fares start at $1,899 per person double for the Christmas Markets cruise. Those sailings are now open for booking by pre-registered guests. On Feb. 26, the booking process will then open to past guests, and all travelers will be able to book starting April 3.
