Construction on the Queen Victoria ship was begun in April 2005 at Fincantieri Shipyards in Italy. The 90,000-ton ship carries 2000 passengers in 990 staterooms. She is 964.5 feet long, 106 feet wide, and has a draft of almost 26 feet.
Soon after her launch, the Queen Victoria embarked on a world cruise in January 2008. The 105-day world cruise took Cunard's newest ship to ports in North America, Australia, Asia, and Europe. After the world cruise, Queen Victoria spent the rest of her first year sailing in Europe, with European itineraries in both northern Europe and the Mediterranean.
These construction photos were provided by Cunard and demonstrate some of the elegant lines and features of the newest Queen.
