New Cunard ship described as ‘phenomenal’

The new Cunard ship build is ‘phenomenal’ according to Stein Kruse, CEO of Holland America Group and Carnival UK.

Speaking about what Cunard fans can expect from the fourth Cunard vessel, president and CEO of Carnival UK, Arnold Donald told Seatrade Cruise News.

‘Adding a fourth ship to Cunard builds on the tremendous legacy of this global brand. It will retain the feel of the Cunard experience. For those who want that classic cruise experience, they imagine the black tie and the high tea. This resonates with people around the world. It’s classic cruising with all the modern touches, like going to an older hotel, but it’s a modern experience. Yet it feels classic like the time when royalty and celebrities sailed.’

Donald went on to confirm that the new ship will not be an ocean liner like Queen Mary 2, and will also differ in design to sister ships Queen Elizabeth and Queen Victoria.

‘I don’t foresee another Queen Mary 2 being built,’ Kruse said. ‘But this will be something really special.’
