Andalsnes, Norway
Åndalsnes sits on the idyllic shores of the Romsdalsfjord. Natural attractions such as the Rauma River, the Vermafossen and Slettafossen waterfalls, Trollveggen (the Troll Wall), and the Trollstigen Road are just waiting to be discovered. Hike up to the Rampestreken view point for panoramic views of Andalsnes or take a ride on the Raumabanen railway to admire the dramatic scenery at a leisurely pace. Climb up one of Norway's highest indoor climbing walls at Norwegian Mountaineering Museum or explore the world of wool production at Rauma Ullvarefabrikk yarn factory.

Trondheim, Norway
Today gives you another opportunity to explore the city of Trondheim. The city walk through Trondheim is a journey through its 1000-year history. Back on board, the ship heads out of the majestic Trondheimsfjord, which is 170 kilometres long and up to 25 kilometres wide. Like all other Norwegian fjords it is deep, 577 metres at most. As we sail along the coast you’ll realise the importance of fish to Norwegian coastal communities. Kristiansund’s location has provided the town with a wealth of opportunities in the fishing, shipbuilding and oil industries. This town is now regarded as Norway’s ‘cured cod capital’ because of its long time export of salted dry fish. Here you can join a trip to the Atlantic Road, one of Norway’s most visited tourist destinations. As we cross the open sea to Molde, known as the ‘city of roses’, you will notice the steep, grey, pointed peaks of the Romsdal Alps.

Background
Queen Anne
Overview
Due to grace the seas in early 2024, Cunard’s 249th ship extends the Line for future generations. Queen Anne will make up a remarkable quartet alongside Queen Mary 2, Queen Victoria, and Queen Elizabeth. 

The name ‘Queen Anne’ celebrates Cunard’s rich heritage, royal history, and refined status – joining a luxury contemporary fleet now honouring the names of each Queen Regnant over the last millennium. 

Their close relationship with the British monarchy is a key part of their heritage, and they pride themselves on a history that is closely interwoven with that of the nation. A fitting name for the fourth in a fleet of prestigious queens, Queen Anne was chosen because of the monarch’s many merits. Reigning between the years of 1702 and 1714, in just twelve short years Queen Anne achieved a great deal, including the unification of Great Britain and pushing forward the boundaries of arts and education, enabling great progress and change. An often overlooked and even mistreated sovereign, Queen Anne was indeed an accomplished and dedicated woman. Well-loved by the people, she was an example of true grace and refinement. Two qualities that are emulated by her namesake, their fourth ship. 

On board Queen Anne, Cunard’s newly designed much-loved signature spaces from across the fleet return, and she also introduces new experiences across dining, culture, and entertainment. Guests will feel inspired by the blend of old and new. Together with a team of World-renowned designers, they have created a ship designed with distinction, and reimagined the voyage experience. 

For over 180 years Cunard have set the bar, and then raised it, continually refining the definitive experience of ocean travel. From this spirit comes the finest ship of its era. A ship inspired by their past and built for their future. They look forward to welcoming guests on board Queen Anne. 

Queen Anne voyages will be available to book in May 2022.
