Cunard’s Queen Victoria to Celebrate 100th Anniversary of the Aquitania's Maiden Voyage


Cunard Line’s 2014 Voyage Program is offering an overnight stay on the Queen Victoria in Liverpool, England, in May – the first two-day call in Cunard's spiritual home made by a Cunard ship in almost 50 years.

Taking place during her 13-day Around the British Isles cruise, departing roundtrip Southampton on May 23, 2014, Queen Victoria will arrive in Liverpool on May 30. That day she will celebrate the 100th Anniversary of the Maiden Voyage of Aquitania.

The largest liner in the world at the time of her May 30 1914 Maiden Voyage, Aquitania became one of the longest-serving Cunarders in history – 36 years – and was the only major liner to serve in both World Wars. The service length and miles sailed (three million) of Aquitania were both only surpassed by Cunard’s Queen Elizabeth 2.

On 30 May 2014, Queen Victoria will remain in port for an overnight stay in Liverpool before continuing on her Around the British Isles cruise. She will also call at South Queensferry, Invergordon, Kirkwall (maiden call), Greenock, Dublin, Cobh and St. Peter Port before arriving back in Southampton on June 5, 2014.

Fares for the May 2014 Around the British Isles voyage start from $2,699 per person, based on double occupancy. Visit for additional details about Cunard Line’s 2014-2015 Voyages Programme.
