For over 180 years we’ve set the bar and then raised it, continually refining the definitive experience of ocean travel.

They have constantly refined and improved the luxury experience in maritime travel and it is in this spirit that they have represented them and continue to represent them today, announcing the name of the company's new ship that will join their renowned fleet.

Due to grace the seas in early 2024, our 249th ship extends the Cunard Line for future generations.

This will be the first time since 1999 that the company will have four ships underway and, with Queen Anne, completes a luxury fleet that now honors the names of every British queen regent over the last millennium.

On board Queen Anne, our newly designed much-loved signature spaces from across the fleet return, and she also introduces new experiences across dining, culture, and entertainment. Feel inspired by the blend of old and new. Together with a team of world-renowned designers, we have created a ship designed with distinction and reimagined the voyage experience.

we introduce you to the captain of queen anne:
Inger Klein Thorhauge.

"Working for Cunard is something that I started 25 years ago, and in all those years I have been extremely proud of working for the brand and it will never change, that feeling."

new captain

Inger was born and grew up in the Faroe Islands and moved to Denmark in 1989. While still at school, she took work as a stewardess on a cargo ship during the holidays to earn some money.

This quickly revealed a deep-set loathing of cleaning which strongly suggested it was not her vocation. With no particular career in mind Inger joined DFDS Scandinavian Seaways as a cadet at the age of 16. She worked her way up through the ranks achieving her Master’s license in 1994, and spent the years between 1994 and 1997 on ferries, Ro-Ro ships and a dredger.

"​coming back to Cunard is like coming home"

Feeling it was time for a change, Inger applied to move to the cruise industry, and was delighted to be accepted by Cunard. She started out working on MS Vistafjord and moved on to travelling the world with Seabourn, Princess and P&O.

After working with P&O and having successfully overseen the build of Azura, Inger was thrilled to be asked to return to Cunard and to join Queen Victoria in August 2010. 

One of her main goals, apart from guest and crew welfare, is focusing on making sure each ship she is on is as “green” as possible, using water saving measures and recycling.

Inger now lives in Svendborg, Denmark where she enjoys spending time in her lovely house and garden. In any spare time, she likes to play the saxophone, go to concerts and spend time with her husband, children and grandchildren.
