Behind the scenes: Chris Frame checks out the construction of Cunard’s Queen Anne

I have recently been onboard Cunard’s brand-new Queen Anne, at the Fincantieri shipyard near Venice, Italy. 

And it was AMAZING! 

For the last few months, I’ve been working with the team at Cunard to present Queen Anne to international media and travel agents. My role included presenting a maritime history keynote address at a welcome dinner in Venice, as well as hosting two of four tours aboard the ship. A lucky group of international journalists and travel agents joined us during the week for the exclusive Queen Anne experience. 

I arrived in Venice a few days before the tours and had the privilege of spending two days with Cunard’s Brand Manager Francis Fred, and the Cunard shipbuilding team aboard Queen Anne, to familiarise myself with the ship. I was blown away by many of the new and exciting features aboard. The huge amount of space aboard the ship really stood out. For what is effectively still a building site, the ship’s internal areas look massive! 

And best of all, I filmed the experience to share with you:
