Cunard has delayed Queen Anne’s maiden voyage from Southampton due to construction issues.

The cruise line said the ship, due to enter service in January 2024, will now set sail from Southampton on 3 May that year.

It said in a statement: “Due in part to unforeseen events that have occurred in recent years, the shipbuilding industry, like other industries, has faced numerous challenges including energy shortages and global supply chain constraints and as a result Queen Anne will be arriving slightly later than expected.”

Passengers booked or waitlisted for the maiden voyage will be automatically transferred to the new sailing on 3 May.

Last month, P&O Cruises announced it was delaying the maiden voyage of its newest ship, Arvia, by a fortnight.
