Fans of Cunard Line’s newest ship MS Queen Elizabeth may be interested to hear that she is spending the month of May at the Blohm & Voss Shipyard in Hamburg, enjoying her first scheduled dry-dock. The magnificent MS Queen Elizabeth entered service in 2010 and this scheduled upgrade will ensure it remains at the top of its game. She is the second largest ship to be constructed for Cunard and can accommodate up to 2,068 passengers in elegant comfort.
As well as conducting standard checks and maintenance, her multi-million pound refit includes the creation of single accommodation options, enhancements to staterooms and other amenities and improvements to restaurant facilities. And on the green front, scrubber technology is also being introduced which will help to minimise the ship’s environmental impact.
Angus Struthers, Cunard’s Marketing Director, commented that: “Queen Elizabeth is already a much loved ship and following this multi-million pound refit she is sure to shine brightly for years to come. Whilst there has been investment across the ship, we are particularly delighted to announce that following this refit, there will be staterooms for single travellers on board a Cunard ship for the first time since QE2.”
MS Queen Elizabeth will leave the yard on Saturday 1 June and sail for Southampton, ahead of her scheduled 4 June cruise to Amsterdam.
