Supply chain woes delay cruise ship debuts
Cunard Line announced in 2017 that it would grow its fleet to four vessels for the first time since the late 1990s.
The addition of the Queen Anne, the first new ship for the brand since the Queen Elizabeth launched in 2010, was slated for 2022.
But that’s not what happened. The ship, being built at the Fincantieri shipyard in Monfalcone, Italy, was eventually rescheduled to launch on Jan. 4, 2024.
