In 2025, the 113,000-ton Queen Anne, being built by Fincantieri in Naples and scheduled for launch in 2024, which can handle 3,000 passengers, will navigate the Western Mediterranean, Western Europe, and the Norwegian Fjords. 

As a special treat, each ship’s schedule will feature at least one inaugural call. Queen Anne, however, will make an impressive 19 maiden calls, introducing guests to lively destinations like Bilbao and Ibiza in Spain, and the Greek island of Santorini in the Aegean Sea.

Queen Victoria will be sailing around the Mediterranean, while Queen Mary 2 will stick primarily to her traditional transatlantic crossings.

Queen Victoria is scheduled to operate in the Mediterranean from May to October 2025, offering a variety of week-long, two-week-long, and three-week-long holiday routes departing from Barcelona, Spain; Trieste in Italy; and Civitavecchia (Rome). 

Additionally, Queen Victoria’s 2025 program will cover a two-week voyage to Istanbul and the Greek Islands in May, including stops in Istanbul, Santorini, and Athens.

Queen Mary 2, on the other hand, will provide travelers with an array of experiences on both sides of the Atlantic. This famous ocean liner will also sail to Caribbean destinations in December, in addition to its customary transatlantic crossings.

The newest member of the Cunard fleet, Queen Anne, will sail from Southampton, England. Passengers will have the opportunity to explore a range of destinations and itineraries lasting only a few days or up to 19 nights in duration.

A few notable examples of Queen Anne’s offerings include a 16-night Mediterranean voyage to France, Spain, and Italy in July 2025, plus a 12-night expedition the month before to the Norwegian Fjords.

Similar to numerous other cruise lines such as Holland America Line, Royal Caribbean Group, Seabourn, Carnival Cruise Line, and more, P&O Cruises and Cunard are enhancing their onboard Wi-Fi capabilities by integrating SpaceX’s Starlink Maritime satellite Internet system with their ships. 

So, whether a traveler books passage on Queen Victoria, or Queen Anne or opts to cross the Atlantic aboard Queen Mary 2, Starlink Maritime should provide them with robust connectivity wherever they happen to be.
